Gearing questions - January 20, 2012, 11:42 AM

What up folks, I am looking at doing a 520 conversion on my 07 Gix 750 (looking at supersprox). I have done a good deal of research and figured out what the changes would be for the plus and minus. My question to you all, what is the best option for primarily being on the track with little street use?

My personal preference on the last bike b4 the accident was I wanted more acceleration when I was coming out of turns in 2nd and 3rd gears (that was an 01 750). Grant it I know that there is a difference in weight and all from the 01 to the 07, but how can I achieve this best? Lastly, I want this bike to pull as much as possible around the track, and not too worried about top end speed cause I highly doubt I'll be at the top end anytime soon on the track. Let me know your real opinions/experiences...

My guess would be to either go -1 up front or +2 in back but that's a very generalized suggestion based on what most folks seem to think works best for track use on 600+ CC motors.

You might want to ping MagicRat to see what his opinion is. He's very familar with the 750.

I have an 06 750 and it's only ridden on the track. I've tried +1 -1+1 and -1+2. Down 1 in the front and up two in the back has been pretty good for most of the tracks i go to. I had issues with other gearing coming out of corners at thunderbolt and main before I switched to -1+2. If you don't want to be changing sprockets for every track then thats a good ratio to start with. You will definitely notice the acceleration and you'll be in the right rpm range in most corners at VIR, Thunderbolt and main. It's won't be bad for street either, the front will come up much quicker.
