won't affect speedo since the sensor is based on wheel speed - minus the 5% stated in the manual

thanks!
The front sprocket is replaced by one that has 1 less tooth (and therefore a smaller circumference). Same concept as on a 10 speed--the smaller the front sprocket (or the larger the rear) and the faster you'll accelerate. Because the smaller sprocket shortens the gearing, you'll sacrifice a little top end, but very few people actually will ever see those kind of triple digit speeds.

I Ride: V4S and Ninja 400. Dichotomy.
Speedo sensor is on the rear wheel, no impact from gearing changes.

I may try this on my though I enjoy taking to the track. Infact I understand one arm racer did change the rear sprocket up 3 teeth to have the revs in the power band...and you don't have to buy a new chain, I presume!

@unrazzo I live in mill valley too. Hope to see you around

Three rear teeth is going to extend the wheelbase. Better for putting power down in a straight line, but might screw up handling.

- Speedo is not effected. Drive shaft doesn't meter for the speedo, it's at the rear wheel.

- Haven't been to the track yet... I'll report when I do in Nov.

-I didn't do the rear because the shop recommended trying the front first. The rear requires more parts and labor as well.

- I have not had it pop-up accidentally yet, but it's easier when I try for sure.

-I'm getting some PM's about the part:

Did they shorten the chain?

If not how did they preserve ride height, once it was adjusted out?
