Tetsuo, stop beeing naughty or you are going to get a lump of coal for Christmas.

I hear most people use minus one up front and at least +2 in the rear. Im sure that would work for you. But don't quote me, because Im not 100% sure. Check out the star boys website and ask in their Technical Questions and Answers. Gearing varies on bike types. Im sure they will be able to tell you what is the best set for parking lots.

ditch the 520, 525 will last way longer, 525 set ups are for racers

Who makes good stunt sprockets that can use a stock chain?
that's kind of a contradicting statement. you wanna get stunt gearing you WILL need a longer chain. i say, don't worry about gearing until you start getting good. bike will come up fine on you stock. i rocked mine stock for a while, 3rd gear was a pain to get up for highway though, but it could be done. i went -1 and +3, nothing too crazy, that's pretty much like you guys going 1 down on the R6. the 600RR is geared really tall stock.

to reiterate my above statement, you can get pretty slow on stock gearing, like a little less than 10 if you're decent. i've stalled only a few times, just gotta keep using the clutch. once you can do that, then worry about gearing. -1 and +10 would be a good start on the R6 i'm sure, maybe even a little much, but they'd defintely slow down. one fine day when i have grips of extra cash, my RR will be all stunt and be 16 F and 60 R with GPR'd triple clamp and mx bars, caged and 12ed, ready to battle the streets

Thanks for the info fellas.

I'm thinking of changing the sprockets on my R1. I was thinking of getting -1 +3 or just the +3 on the back???

-1 = less chain... and +2 in the rear, so its like going +5 in the rear
