Afam or talon sprockets and a DID chain ,just knock 1tooth off the front that'll be fine !
Thanks, it was chain wear that was the cause of the clicking. Is dropping 1 of the front a big difference don't want a massive increase. And is work doable by me or am I best getting her in a garage?

Unless you know what ya doung prob best to get a garage to do it ,the front sprocket nut normally needs an airgun to get it off !dropping 1 off the front isn't massive but you'll def feel the difference ,I've done it too both my 600s !

80in 1st ?that don't sound right not for a 600 ?it will accelerate abit quicker but you will lose abit off the top end !

I think for your year bike the actual 1st gear top end is around 65mph give the speedo is normally 10%out so could be reading around 72ish,mine only reads about 70 in 1st I think ?still enough though lol I know my old 2001j2 600 used to hit rev limit in 1st at about 65ish and 95-99 in 2nd(on the back wheel haha)
