I went from an oem 43t to a vortex 57 tooth. It was fun when it lasted. 2nd gear felt like how 1st did. 1st gear was stupidly crazy, but i had fun with it! The larger sprocket made the chain rub when it was going through the swing arm. The chain eventually snapped on me when I was doing about 70 on the freeway.

I went with a 15/49 and I think about 126 link chain. I'm doing power wheelies 1st gear sit down at 30mph no problems. Stand-ups at lower speeds. It also fits under the stock chain guard and prob room for a 52 rear.
