I know there is roughly a 5-7% speedo error stock. I just bought a rear sprocket that is +2. Any idea how much additional error this is going to introduce?? Or, more importantly will it be a noticable difference (I should now drive an indicated x mph faster than I do now)...

You have to look on the back side of the engine underneath the swing arm pivot :)

thanks... I guess I'll just add an extra couple of mph to my cruising speed... I just hope this change will help me get the front up a little easier in 2nd gear....

Just move your decimal over 1 place and subtract that amount.

75 -7.5 =67.5 45-4.5 = 40.5

That'll get you close enough.
