Chain vs. Sprocket size
Had my bike about a month now, starting to discover the little things that need attention and the things that need to be changed and improved but need a little help with the chain and sprocket
I know i need a new chain, the wear label and swing arm tell me and just looking at it you can see its spanked. What I want to do is replace both drive and driven sprocket and the chain. I'm new to owning a bike but understand a larger driven sprocket will give me a little more off the start, or a smaller drive sprocket do the same.
My bike is a 02 Shadow Spirit VT750DC its 17/42 Sprocket with 124 links on all the stock stuff. Should I go for larger in the back? And if so how many links do I add the the chain?
Where's everyone get their drive equipment? Ive been on bikebandit they got quite a collection.
Appreciate the feedback
