First off, we will forget the fact your odometer is already 10% off from the factory, which means my numbers will be even larger than the average person simply making the change.

After a sprocket change, lets say it is 15% off. So for every 100 miles you go, your odometer gains 15miles. For 1000 miles, that is 150 miles. 5000 miles that is 750 miles. For 10,000 miles that is 1500 miles added that werent there.

Do you think at any one of those mile points the mileage added negatively effects the bikes value by any significant amount?

Would you buy a 3000mi bike for a given price, but pass on a 3750mi bike for the same price?

How about a 10kmi bike vs an 11.5k bike?

Nope. Not me

It is negligible in that sense.

take out the initial ten percent you have stock anyway, and those numbers get WAY smaller. 5%.

At 10k miles you get 500 miles off due to the 5% added by the sprockets as compared to the average stock bike.
my 750's was off by 7.2%. just sayin'

Re: whats the diff if u change sprocket sizes

Every motorcycle ever made does not have an accurate speedometer not every car has an accurate speedometer usually the faster you go the more its off the rear tire expands older bikes used a cable for the front with a geared hub. the only accurate way to tell how fast your going is if you know how to read your tachometer most racing rely solely on the tach and a lot of times the speedo is taped off. As for gearing I am merely stating the effect and the reasons for doing so, and if you do decide to get a bigger rear sprocket it will effect your mileage indefinitely and the more revolutions your motor and trans will go through is more tear and wear...
