What are you guys running? Stock for an 03' is 14/51*2 ?? saw where the SMR is 14/45 (says JT) 14/52 or 14/45 (says SunStar)?
bikes gonna be on the street mostly (doubt it'll ever see a track day) opinions/experiences are greatly appreciated.

I have a 560 smr and i am currently running 15/45 but i'm thinking about changing up to a 16 or maybe even 17 up front to get a little better cruising rpm at 70 mph. but it is a great around town gearing.

14/38 for 17" sumo wheels (I don't know if you can get anything bigger than a 14 on the front without dumping your case saver).... should be about right for hwy use.

Just my .02

probably going with the 14/45 set up unless someone feels the need to object:hmmm:

14/45 would work but it would rev a bit too much on the hwy in my opinion... not to mention a decline in mileage at hwy speeds (if that is even a concern).

You can always get a smaller rear sprocket later if you don't like the 45 (but you will have to cut the chain).

good luck and post up some pics soon !
