Hi folks, today I installed a 14t front sprocket on my bike and have been out for a ride.
Acceleration is noticeably improved in all gears. The bike pulls away a lot faster from traffic and can spin the bike wheel if you deliberately give it too much throttle going round a corner.
Too early to tell how it will affect fuel economy but since its already great on fuel I'm not worried.
I have yet to hoik the front wheel off the ground unless from a standing start.

Has anyone else performed this modification and if so what were your experiences
Cheers

I added the Vortex 14 tooth sprocket to my 500. Big change in performance. Pulls a lot harder in all gears . Only tops out at 100 mph. And gas took a lil bit of a hit but not that bad. But 1st gear got way shorter!!! So Great for funnin around on surface streets and bar hopping but not great if its your main long haul all day highway commuter.
