Default 14/45 sprockets on a 1996 CBR F3 600

Hi, I just got a 1996 CBR F3 600 with 31k miles. It came with a 14t front and 45t on the back with a 530 chain. Factory is 15/43. I'm clueless what the previous owner had try to get from that ratio. Thanks!

Yep. Smaller up front or larger in the rear leads to quicker accel but lower top speed. Makes it quicker off the line and easier to pop up.
