Hello all,

I am new to the forum and had a few questions. Bike stats are: 04 VLX with 5000 miles.

I have searched the forums through and through as to which sprocket I should put on my VLX. Some say the 40t and some say the 41t. So my question is which would be better.

I will be doing mostly 1up riding with very little 2up.

I don't want to lose to much pick up and go at the low end.

I plan on doing a lot of backroad and highway riding, because that is what we have here in Wyoming.

Also when I change the rear sprocket should I go ahead and change the front sprocket since the bike has 5000 miles?

Should I change the chain as well, which looks to be in good shape and well taken care of. Will I have to remove links from the chain when putting either the 41t or 40t sprocket on?

Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions that are given.
