I am running 15/39. I know others are running a 16 front. Also, this might be better suited to the Suzuki section under manufacturers and I know it has been covered there several times.

Drop that 14. The front must be larger for those speeds.

Drop the rear sprocket down 2-3 teeth as that is equal to going +1 in the front. You'll prob have to bust a few links outta the chain though, but it's not a big deal.

If it is a new SM it is a 15/41 not a 14 unless it was changed. Either get a 38-39 in the back or get a Driven 16 tooth front from Forrest at Wheelingcyclesupply.com
