will if you change your sprockets for more accelaration off the line, you will lose a little bit off of your top speed. but i like the vortex sprockets...... go 1 down in front that will be very noticable,. but not enough to take away alot from top speed. my.02

drop a tooth or two in the front that way you wont have to buy a new chain (if its in good condition)

i dropped two on my 600 and shes good to go..top out is 155-160 on the speedo

NO TOp Speed....

There is no magic recipee, just keep in mind 14/42 = 16/48
do your math....and do some experiments until you find your best...

I don´t care about top speed, actually I'm 14/48 = 3.42
pretty good in the twisties, but 15/48 = 3.20 suits me better.

Ride safe.......... :thumbup:

i went -1 front(JT sprocket) and +1rear(Vortex sprocket) you'll never notice the top end b/c your usually not doing above 160mph....atleast i never do, but the bike comes off the line like a bat outta hell.

Final Ratio.......

Driven Sproket / Drive Sproket = Final Ratio : 1
(Rear Sproket) / (Front Sproket) = number or rear sproket rotations against 1 rotation in the front.....

By example 48 rear / 16 front = 3 turns in the rear : 1 turn in the front

Note: this is a simple math, not counting if you change your Internal Gears ratios and/or final reduction in the gear box...
remember if U change your rear tyre, circumference changes by brand, again you have to do your maths again.

Ride Safe....... :thumbup:

To VSP..........

First Question... NO ... change it for a 14 or 15 sproket and U will be fine
stock GSXR 600 is 45/16 = 2.81:1 45/15 = 3:1 45/14 = 3.21:1

Second Question... More than enough... je je je

Ride Safe........... :thumbup:

aight, so if i change my front sprocket do i still need to change my rear? :hmmm:

no, only if you wan't more wheelie help or low gear speed. stock is 16/45 you could go 14,15/45 my setup on my 600 is 15/46...u just gotta figure out what kinda riding you'll be doing, i know this is pretty much the same as the post above, just trying to add a little xtra help. :thumbup: and for some reason the H.P. question, i keep seeing the # 164h.p. but i could be wrong, i remember reading b4 the forums got erased.

it's normal, don't sweat it, it's extremely normal at odd speeds. it tends to get a little bit lower as your bike breaks in, but you'll always be able to hear it.

yea its the norm12,000 miles later and it still doesnt seem like a good sound. :lol: if u r needing an oilchange it will get louder and will get stiffer and harder to get it to go into gear. that all depends on what oil u use and how u use ur bike.

Goto the RK Chain website they will give you the best ratio for your application. I did a 520 Race Conversion on mine 15/43 with Vortex sprockets, Regina gold x-ring chain. It works a hell of alot better.
