smaller front usually only 1 down = more accesleration
larger rear = more accesleration
i would only do either -1 front or +2 rear
if you do too much u will just pull wheelies everywhere

You can make your bike pull harder or go faster(top speed) by changing your gear ratios.But when you change it to pull harder you loose top speed,and vise-versa.
Taking 1 tooth off the front is like adding 2 or 3 on the rear.Your chain may not be long enough if you just add teeth on the rear so you have to take that into account.

I've heard a lot of talk about putting smaller sprockets on the bikes. What exactly is the benefit to this? this is just a question
well if you are worried about looin it or something then get a +1 in front or - 3 in back.....idk how much of this it will effect the bike, but i am thinking of adding 3 in back and taking one off the front(weelie monster) :beer2: :jd: :clap: :hang: :chair: :neen: :loud:

-1 Front = cheap
Its about the same as +3 rear - $
If its not enough you can always go up on rear later.
I think -1 front & +3 rear would kill the already limited top end on the 650.
Maybe -1 & + 1 would be ok. :2cents:

bull just do -1 in the front. especially with a v-twin, you already have down low power, and y do this over the rear, becasue its cheaper adn its the same thing. no matter hwo you do it, it is still effecting the ratio so there iwll be no difference in doing either the rear or jsut the front. -1 front is just under +3 rear.

I have -1 in the front on my 600...it was that way when the S/O gave it to me.....
But, I remember when he changed it...it only required an adjustment to the chain...

I could feel the difference at take off (acceleration)
and I was the passenger...As the driver, I can not tell you the difference, because I never drove it before the change….
