Will a 16 tooth front sprocket fit ? Or will it make the chain hit the case ?
Going up 1 tooth on the front is like dropping 3 teeth in the back.You will see a bigger change in gearing (top speed) when you go down a tooth in the rear. I had a street legal Suzuki Z400 that I changed the rear sprocket on after seeing little change with a different drive sprocket.
