front or rear sprocket recommendation

Can anyone recommend a front of rear sprocket change on the 1299? Would I need rear or front or both. Looking to achieve low to mid range.

Generally you would put one tooth smaller on the front.

The cheap route is front sprocket -1. That's equivalent to about a +2 1/2 rear. This option will allow you to reuse the stock chain. You'll lose a few mph on the top end but who cares. The expensive route is changing the pitch from the oem 525 to a 520 conversion. Obviously you'll need to replace everything and prices can range from $350 and up but you'll also have plenty of options for different combinations and colors. If money isn't an issue and modding is your thing, then 520 conversion is your only option. Save a little bit of weight, get some custom colors and increase low end grunt. 15/39 is oem setup on base and S. 15/41 is R setup. I've got 15/42 setup and love it. Anything past that and you'll be rubbing chain on the swingarm.

I had dealer put the R rear sprocket on to change it to 15/41. Made a noticable difference on some of the twisty, low speed roads where i live. Cost me 160 all in. Bargain I thought.

When you said I would need to replace everything did you mean the sprocket and chain? Or were there other parts that would need replacing. And what is it about the 15/42 setup you love? Can you explain the difference in ride between a 15/41 setup vs a 15/42 setup?

Sprocket and chain as far as function goes. If you wanna save more weight, you can add titanium cush drives. If you want looks, you can add a flange.

It's not gonna be a huge or maybe even noticeable difference between a 41 and 42 rear. I simply went 42 because i wanted to add the largest rear i could without problems. Hell, I've never done past 120mph on the bike so top end is not what I'm after but my throttle used to be jerky enough with the throttle spacer mod (still tryin to get used to 0 slop from the factory on my dragster also) so a 14 front woulda been worse and more shifting of gears, which is why i just focused on the rear only.

I went 520 conversion 15/42 AEM quick change setup (not that I need it), 3D chain, and AEM flange. My bike is 99% looks even though it's modded with performance parts.

If I didnt want the AEM quick change set up. Could I just get the Supersprox Stealth sprocket and chain without getting the flange? And if so what size chain for a 15/42 and 15/41 setup

Sure you can. As far as chain length, I'm not sure. I think if you order through them, they cut the chain to the proper length based on which sprocket size you go with.

1 tooth down on the front and remove one chain link keeps the geometry correct I believe.
