new sprocket

I currently have 43 tooth rear sprocket on my superhawk from the previous owner. I assume the front one was left at the stock 16T.

I wan't want to go to a 15T in the front and up a couple of teeth in the rear. I just wanted to know if any one of you guys has tried that or is running 15/45.... any thought or comments would be appretiated before i buy the new sprockets.

Thanks.

I run a 15/45 on the track. I would not suggest it for the street. the rpm on the freeway is around 6500/7000 crusing at 65. personaly a 15/43 is more then enough and a big differce. I went the same route with at 530 16/41 to a 16/43. and then did a 15/45 when it became a 90/10 track/street bike. I also keep a 43 sproket for longer tracks. a 15/45 is really short gearing much shorter then you would think.

I haven't pulled off the cover to see the counter shaft sprocket, but my rear is a 43. Mine was bought used and modded as well. I run about 4500-4800 rpm on the highway.....70ish since speedo is way off. Reads about 90 while running with traffic.

oh and it is easy to do a second gear wheelie from 40-45 all the way to third gear.

at the track i hit 100 mph in the 1/8 mile, and thats the top end third at 9600 rpm.

98honda: I'd guess your front is 15 and I'd suggest using a speedo healer to correct your readings and avoid phantom miles...

I'm running the 15/43 520 kit. 5th gear standups aren't a problem with a good yank on the bars.

i set forward to the tank when i 1st gear, and then roll into the throttle, powers on up but in 2nd i'll sit in the seat, hit about 40 is were i like it, and pop the clutch and up she comes and i try to just keep it up as long as i can till i shift to 3rd, and then it comes back down.

I used to only do sit downs myself. Then my friend kept telling me to stand up. So I did, and from then on I was a pro. Much more control and I don't have to keep accelerating cause I'm at balance point. I switched to the 15/43 and now I can come out of turns on the back wheel no problem. It's also a good idea to cover the back brake as well.

what do you do, to do a stand up wheelie?

just stand up, pull up, and then throttle at the same time?
