Default Sprocket Suggestion?

Hey all!

Well am about to replace my long over due chain, and my friend was telling me I should go with a +1/-2 sprocket conversion.

I do want the increased acceleration, but I was wondering if anyone had suggestions on brands, where to buy the sprockets for the best price. And if/or a +1/-2 (15 front /47 Rear) conversion is a good set up for the 06 F4i

Thanks in advance as always for yalls help!!

I think you have that backwards. For better acceleration you'd want a -1/+2. Think of how the gearing works on a bicycle.

You've been on this board for 2yrs and haven't read 10 millions threads asking this same question already? Really?

sprocketcenter.com
-1/+2 for acceleration, lower top speeds and higher rpm at cruise in 6th gear
stock still has good acceleration but higher top speed and lower rpm at 6th gear cruise
