Re: sprocket advice needed.
I have the 06 and had alot of trouble getting it up in second, and I still have stock gearing. If you really dont want to change the sprockets, try a different technique to get it up. Take the bike to 7-8 revs, while still on the throttle, all in one motion pull the clutch in just enough to slip it give the bike a good bounce rev the engine a good amount ( start small and work your way up until it really flies up on you ) and pull up, just stay on the gas hard when the tire comes off the ground and it will fly right up for you. The key is to stay hard on the gas, and get past the fear. Guaranteed with some trial and error it will come up every time for you.
