Actually Denver, you may have just saved me both €€€ and potential agro.

Think I'll simply set to my drive train with red/gold/black markers to bling it up a bit

Good points, now that my shipment arrived For those who have gone to the 41 tooth, is the bike much more wheelie prone under acceleration, or is the difference not that pronounced?

I find it more difficult because of the smoother power curve.

The bike is smoother because the delivery of the power even though higher is more predictable and consistent.
Thanks from Denver Rick and youngR

That's what I personally think. With the old sprocket there was an obvious droop and surge in power causing it to be more wheelie prone and less progressive than it is now. Super smooth, I feel like I can accelerate faster with more control.

I have done a -1/+2 on eveyr bike except this, only 2 up.

What did you order? Are you going with the upgrade to 41?

i followed Gunny's lead and went with a 40 rear (AFAM quick change longevity kit). i like the idea of working in smaller steps than going with a two-tooth jump, will have it installed along with the Termi slip-on later this week. the negative is that one of the two mods might mask the other in terms of its "improvement" to the overall feel of the motor/bike.

i found this thread to be very helpful......thanks,
Thanks from Gunny Fitz

So this thread clearly lays out the possibilities and seat of the pants impact of the change but wondering whether we have any empirical data yet?

Someone ventured that the 41T would increase RPM in top gear flat out by 250rpm - can anybody offer some data, perhaps from a DDA or other data logging device?

Ok, I went out and finally installed the AFAM 520 conversion kit today (light weight). 15T steel front sprocket, 41T Rear (Aluminum), Carrier (Aluminum) and DID ERV3 chain. It really made the bike easier to ride in the streets. Midrange power is really noticeable. I will say quite a bit more power in the midrange. Quicker acceleration and was able to achieve "---" on the speedo with no problem. Didn't have my GPS so I don't know how fast I was going once I reached --- on the speedo and it didn't feel like it was pulling as hard like the 39T did but still pulled some. Power wheelies, a lot easier. Best part for me is it reduced the tall gearing. I can now ride at slow speeds 35 MPH or less with enough power without sounding like I don't know how to shift. All in all I recommend the change. There is a huge weight savings.
