I have an 09 GSXR 600 and i want to mod the sprocket so that it facilitates doing wheelies without sacrificing power and speed...can anyone help me with a size suggestion???

Also can anyone tell me a good crash cage to look into? I looked into the sickinnovations one but they don't have it for my year, they did tell me that "they heard" the 06-07 fits the 08-09..does any1 know if that is true???

well if you plan on still using highways and don't wanna sacrifice TOO much top end, I would go with -1 in front and +2 in back. That's the setup I had before this one and it was pretty sweet. Major difference. I swapped out the back back to stock size though. I'm on the freeways too much. I mean it'll take freeways fine, still would go 150mph but when i was cruising at like 80 it was just a lil too high reving for me. If you are talking about strictly stunting then somebody else should chime in here. I know crap about stunting sprockets/sizes.

Not much, but hope it helps.

I also did the -1/+2 conversion, but to be honest the sprocket size doesn't matter too much. I'm sure it helps, but like the first poster said, it will be revving higher on freeways, less MPG gas wise, and sacrifice a little top end, but when you know how to do a wheelie you'll realize the amount of gas left in your tank is a bigger deal then anything else. A lot of the newer people to stunting seem to like the idea of powering it up, but clutch is so consistent. I just bring it up to 6-7g RPMs in first, pull clutch in for a sec and let go. It pops the front up just enough for me to be able to power it up. The way the engine is placed in these is way forward compared to R6. But once you have the little momentum and weight towards the back it comes up no problem and you can easily just power it up to a comfortable height.

03pearl750, i like what youve done to ur gixxer!!!

I've gone -1 at the front and its much more ridable now, each gear sits at about 6k so its not too noisy for the stock pipe and u can sit in 4th and it will move straight away when rinsed, whereas on the stock sprocket, it took a few seconds to get into the power band..i gots a K7 600...

Thanx.. yea that helps..im not trying to turn it into a stunt bike..i like speed but i jst want my wheelies to go up a little easier than on the stock sproket...
-1 front +2 rear and a sticker that says "squid" on your taillight :thumbup: :laughingrJust kidding. but -1 +2 is your best combo for starting off and just getting alittle bit more "yut ughh" out of your gixxa! :lol:
