Sprocket change, Q's

So I'm doing the 520 soon and have to choose my gearing. I'd love to try 15/50 but I'm a little worried I'd miss my stock gearing. If I chose one to experiment would it be better to go for the -1 up front or the +2 in the rear?

Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE
