If i am right,upgrading the sprocket to a smaller size will help the engine in the long run but how much speed will i gain from a smaller sprocket and will i lose acceleration at all?
I like the smaller gears for the lower cruising rpm's so it should last longer. faster by maybe 1-2
km per tooth, if you go faster in the top end your gunna go slower down low
