15/46 vs 14/43. any differences? pls advise

hi guys,
I'm currently running 15/46. planning to go down to 14/43 since it has e same ratio. with lesser teeth and chain links, I presume acceleration should be faster?
any advise on how 14/43 will affect the bike?

There is no discernible difference between the two, it's a waste of time, do the comparison at Gearing Commander -

I have seen folks say that a 14 front will cause your chain to rub on the swingarm, so there's a second reason to not do this. Why not just stick a 16 on with your 46 rear?

No difference that you will notice. Even if there was, it would be cancelled out by wrapping the chain so tight around that 14 front
