Best sprocket setup for 08

I've got a 2008 r6 with 3.5k miles on it. I want faster acceleration I don't care much about top end at 160mph because I think its pointless to go that fast if I'm going to give up acceleration. Let me know what you guys have for setups, what brands you use and how you like it! Planning on getting full leo vince exhaust, power commander 5, larger air filter, new sprocket and chain then a dyno tune. Let me know if you have any advice! i'm new to the r6's and I'd love any advice anyone has. Thanks!

Stock is 16 / 45

i used stock chain and got pitbull front Sprocket and Driven rear Sprocket .

Stock is 525 Pitch

But i will be switching to 520 Pitch RK GXW with new Sprockets..

Note: Pitch must match on F Sprkt Chain and R Sprkt

Re: Best sprocket setup for 08

I'd go with -1/+1. -1/+2 is TOO much, imo. I have Driven sprockets and DID chain. Also if you are super OCD like me, get a SpeedoDRD to fix your speedometer. Lastly, I'd probably swap out the sprockets and chain last. I'd run the full system and fuel management first because those are PLENTY quick already.

Re: Best sprocket setup for 08

The bigger Rear Sprocket the more acceleration you get and the more you lose on top speed

I agree with Sherman....now after adding fuel management and updated air filter with a flashed ECU im strugling to keep the front tire down so -1+1 Sounds more realistic.

I also Agree with Sherman. I went -1/+1 and im very happy with it!! Its not too crazy. This is what i got from Motomummy.com

They have also, always taken care of me!!! Plus here is a link to the chain guide that lists the different items.

The EK MVXZ id say this the best chain you can get from what i saw from the listings. I got the package deal, and went with a drdspeedo and a rivet/chain breaker for a total around 300 new to my door with free shipping!!

GL on what you choose but -1/+1 should be plenty
