Hey guys i hate asking but i am absolutely clueless when it comes to the whole sprocket kit buying.I dont want a huge sprocket,like jason brittons for example,however i want to go bigger to make wheelies easier.Now,purchasing anything that has to do with sprockets is like asking me to buy a part for an airplane.I have no idea.Any help would be awesome as to what i need,what brands to look at,etc.etc. Thanks so much guys.

well the most popular thing to do is the -1 (negative one tooth front sprocket) +2 (plus two teeth rear sprocket) and the 520 chain conversion...like $200...makes wheelies a lot easier I hear, I havent done it yet but thinking about it...

Well are you wanting to stunt or what? What year bike do you have? If you want the bike just to come up a little easier the -1/+2(about like going +5 in rear alone) is good. but if you want to be able to get better and really slow stuff down -1/+5 is pretty good(is like almost going +8 in the rear). Just depends. Some people don't even go down in the front and just throw like a +10 to +15 rear on. Sick innovations makes a +12(60T) rear for the 99-05 bikes. They also make a 50(+2) and a 55(+7) they are all 520 pitch, but I like them because they are steel instead of aluminum.
So depends on what you are wanting to do.

Depends on if your an experience rider and also depends on what you wanna do. I recommend going down one in the front sprocket to start its the cheapest way and you can still use your same chain. I didnt think it would help much just going down one sprocket but it def helps big difference. and its a cheap like 25.00 bucks.
Any questions feel free to ask.
I have a 2005 r6.

I am stock up front (reduces twitchiness) and 10 up in the rear ... pulls good on idle

Thanks for all the advice guys.Oh and i have an 03.I dont want to go full out stunter,i would just like to be able to pull it up easier than what i can do with a stock sprocket.For that reason,and pretty much that reason alone i have been thinking about a sprocket kit

so in my situation,should i go -1/+2 or just go just +5 in the rear since they are apparently equal?

I just put on my +5 sprocket on the rear, no change in the front. It pulls up easier and isnt to twitchy. im thinking bout going -1 in the front tho cuz im gonna start slowing it down to lot speed. i would just go -1 +2 because most the time u can re-use ur stock chain with the right size sprockets i.e: 520 525 530 etc. whatever the stock chain is. think its 525
