    Anyone have gearing recs for an R3 on Big Willow?

    Bike is dyno tuned with a Graves slip on. No idea the numbers as it was done before I bought it. Suspension is modded. It's definitely track worthy.

    Stock I understand is 14/43. I believe it's 13/43 now which worked pretty well at Streets of Willow.

    I'm thinking something like 14/41 or 14/40. Could do 15/41 I suppose also but that's starting to get a little tall maybe.

    I'd like to be able to run the same chain. Not sure if it's possible.

    New to the bike and only ran it the one weekend at SoW. Any advice is appreciated. It'll see Chuckwalla soon also.

    Thanks!

    Oh, and chain is still 520 which I plan to stick with.

    I only know with my R6 I did -1/+1 at Willow (instead of usual -1/+2) and I dropped 2 seconds and started winning Expert 600 races. Gearing is really important there. You want it taller than normal.

    Thats all I got.

    We usually go with 3 to 3.1 at big willow on the super sport little bikes. Chuckwalla is good a little bit taller 2.9-3.
