Hey guys, I just picked up a 2001 GSXR 600 race bike and need your opinion on something. The bike comes stock with 16/45 gearing I think, my question is, can I run a 14 tooth front sprocket without any issues?? I really didnt want to do a 520 conversion, and I was told that droping 2 teeth in the front would be ok, but can it work and will the stock chain be ok?

Thanks

You can do it....Though, it'll rub on the guide real bad, and eventually wear through, as well as wear the chain out much faster (friction from making such a rapid tight ratio turn around the small gear) than it would otherwise.
