+2 in the back was enough for me until I went to the 55 series rear. Now I wish I was+3.

You probably went down one in the front with your +2 in the back?

I went 16 front and 46 rear with a 55 profile tire. Works out to be about an 8% reduction in gearing IIRC. I like it as it gets you into the fun RPM zone a bit quicker. I have seen a slight reduction in mileage, but even with a lot of city riding, red lights, traffic and womping the **** out of the bike on backroads, I still average around 39mpg. On longer country rides with less stopping and throttle, low to med 40's should be easy.

My gearing makes it so 6th gear is all you need above 30mph, and still have plenty of torque and acceleration. Its like a friggen electric motor with 16/46, K&N filter and Danos flash.

After 2 full years of ownership and 7K miles, I LOVE this bike!!

I'm also looking to replace chain and sprockets, aside from standard the main alternative seems to be -1 at the front and a corresponding +1 at the rear. Does this really make a significant difference and importantly is anything else affected by making a change like this i.e. ECU, speedo etc.?

I’m also running -1 front and + 2 rear(16/46) and love it! Running a 190/55 rear tire. Think it definitely makes it more fun to ride!

Yes it does make a significant difference! Doesn’t affect anything negatively! Speed is taken at the front wheel sensor so doesn’t affect speedo.
