2017 + Models Sprocket Size Change - Any Luck?

Has anyone with a 2017 + model had any success changing one of the sprocket sizes to make the gearing taller and at the same time resolving the error codes that come up when doing so?

Not that I know of. And it doesn't seem like anyone read these error codes before re-installing their original cogs.

Just an update. My tuner who will be tuning and flashing the ECU in my 17' N1K next week reached out to Woolich about the sprocket size change and error codes issue to find out if they have any solutions. I'll let you guys know what I hear back from him. Surprised no one else on this forum with a 17+ model has had success with sprocket size changes for taller gearing.

This question has been asked of the tuning wizards and so far none has answered it, we're hitting a wall. I suspect this issue involves the cornering ABS program, and will be outside their area of expertise.

This is my understanding talking to tuners down here when I asked on behalf of others here, including Attack Performance. There are also potential liability concerns with tweaking abs and tc functions.

Personally, I'm trying to emphasize the sport part of this sport tourer, I'm not trying to make the bike accelerate slower than it already is in general. On the freeway actually love the set it and forget it 6th gear roll on passing power that makes the bike feel like the world's fastest scooter with little need to downshift. Surely I can't be the only one that is good with the stock gearing and willing to live with it.

I'm good with the stock gearing. I see no need to raise it to lower Highway RPM.

I'm not trying to insult anyone here but, if you think the N1k has too low highway gear, you need to go ride any of the supersport bikes of just about any displacement. Seriously. Start with a 600cc. Let me clue you in: The first number of your speed will normally correspond to the first number of your RPM.

Look at it from another perspective. The N1k is NOT a Concours 1400 nor a Goldwing. It's a Ninja, which morphed from the Z1000 naked sportbike family, which in turn is just the bigger brother of the ZX10R supersport.
