What sprocket size?

Having trouble picking what sprocket setup I want on my 06 r6. I'm in between a -1/+2 or a -2/+4. As I do like to wheelie a lot I also like to go through turns pretty quickly. I heard -1/+2 tops out around a low 150mph, but I don't know about -2/+4 some input would be great. I guess I would say I want my bike geared this way so I can clutch up wheelies in 2nd as easy as I can in 1st on stock gears. If anyone has experience on these 2 setups please comment. Especially on the wheelies for each gear (-1/+2 and -2/+4). If you think there's a better setup for top speed/2nd gear wheelies some input would be great, I'm sick of hitting rev limit during my wheelies. Thanks in advance.

You can clutch up a wheelie in 2nd with -1+2 no problem. You'll lose a significantly more amount of top end with -2+4

Do I still have to bounce it...I like my front stiff, and my forks barely dip when I try to bounce on stock gearing, my friend has -1/+2 on his 07 r6 and he doesn't get it up first try in 2nd, he usually gets it 2nd or 3rd try w/ a bounce, he was explaining to me that -1/+2 is the same as stock gearing for 2nd gear clutch up, the only difference is 1st is 20x easier and in 2nd he can do them around 55-60ish opposed to me where I'd have to start below 50mph...still no luck in 2nd for stock gearing I have to chase the wheelie if I get lucky or it only pops up like waist height.

I clutched them up just fine in 2nd when I had stock gearing. I can clutch them easier now in 2nd with -1+2.

Is it a lot easier with -1/+2 or just barely easier from stock gearing?

Just do -1 +2 and you'll be happy. If you don't have a full exhaust get one of those. The snappy trottle response made second gear clutch ups way easier. add a BAUCE ecu flash and you don't even need to try.

Re: What sprocket size?

scibona55: The thread is 3 years old.

Anyway, -1/+1 and -1/+2 are very close to the same thing. 1 tooth difference in the rear is very very minimal in terms of a change. It's barely even noticeable. I would wager most people couldn't tell the difference between one tooth in the rear difference. Most people do -1/+2, but some who think that may be too much do -1/+1, however they are super close to the same thing. If you're unsure on what gearing to do I would recommend doing a -1 tooth in the front in 525 if that is what your bike is stock. This way for 20-30 dollars you can see how a -1 changes the bike and then purchase a chain kit based on that. -1 in the front is about the same as +3 in the rear so if you want almost double the difference do -1/+2 or if you like where it's at purchase a chain kit with a -1/stock. This way instead of throwing 170 dollars out the window on gearing you don't like you can throw 20-30 out the window testing and then ensure you get the chain kit with the gearing you want.
