Gearing 2008 R6

Postby Daytona624 » Tue Feb 28, 2012 11:30 pm

Hello all, I have a 2008 R6, basically stock, it has a custom pipe and a PC. I am racing and doing the track day in two weeks. I was wondering if some would be able to tell me the type of gearing I would need. I have it set up right now for the SMRI track. Thank you for any input.

Ben's needs another tooth or two on the rear from when I rode it, so I'd say -2 front +2 rear

Roger, I agree. I'm -2 front and +2 rear on mine.
If it doesn't have wheels, it's not a sport. It's just a game.

Yeah, you should probably listen to Mickey, he pulls me down the straights every time, or maybe that's just motor, hmmmmmmm........

So I have two rear sprockets a 46 and a 48. Two front a 14 and a 15. I think stock is 45/16. what would be the best ratio ? -2 +2 would be 14 47 rear.

Roger runs really short gears. I go for 15/46 and have been pretty-much good at every track. Shorter than that, the wheelbase is too short and I fight the bike.
