Gearing Question

I ride a 2006 R6 and I am wanting to buy a larger sprocket for the rear for a little added low end power. Just wondering if any of you guys have done this and would recommend a certain brand, how many teeth to go up, or anything else I should consider.

At a less costly price, you can almost obtain the same & NOT have to put on a new chain. Just put on a front drive sprocket of one-less tooth. I think stock is 16 teeth, so you could drop it to 15 & receive something similiar to 1.5 added teeth on the rear.

It is an easy & less costly way to see what the change would be like. Though definately check on what your R6 has for said sprocket.

Note you will be using up more fuel & will have a drop in 6th gear.

Remember all the others on the road are crazy & out to kill you.
