Will it affect the speedo at all? When i changed the front sprocket (+1) I didn't notice a change in the offset of the speedo with my GPS. I think its been discussed on the board that the speedo is getting its reading from the ABS sensor on the front wheel. If that's true then changing the size of the front tire might affect the mismatch, but changing the rear tire would have no impact.Well at least the speedo will finally be closer to accurate...
I can understand why the Nitracity would like the better looks but if performance isn't degraded too much, he still might be happy with it. Then again it could suck terribly and he might want to change it immediately.
Who knows, he might like the handling better. I'd love to hear his feedback if he does it though.
lol!!!the bike is sharper and crisper on turn-in. It has the same effect as decreasing the rake on the forks. The normal tradeoff would potentially be less stability at high speeds. I can assure there is no issue with that. Let's just say i've seen the theoretical top speed achieved on a ninja 1000 abs racing game and no stability issues.
