what gearing works best for a 90 gsxr750.I ride mostly canyons but they very greatly from the high speed balls to the wall sweeepers to really tight technical stuff

I'd go with +3 on the rear. I've got that on my 1100 (93), but due to the 5 speed will change to +2 next time around. With your top gear final ratio, shouldn't be any problem.

I'm happy with three up on the rear and one down up front- cut the hell outa my top end but I'd rather have bottom end anyway.

Rear is now 45 (stock is 42) front is 13 (stock is 14.)

Spot on Talisan. 15/43 is correct.

I'm going up 2 on the back on my '90 1100. The slightly larger rear sprocket shortens the wheelbase a little. This and the willingness to rev quicker will make it wheelie easier

I was always told 1 in the front = about 4 in the back. I had a 90 with stage 1 jet kit , V&H pipe and one down in the front(14). I used to out run most of the 750's and could run with SOME of the bigger bikes at that time. It changed my rpm's about 500. I didn't really loose to much top end. the gearing made a big difference.

I like the stock gearing myself.I use the bike once and a while for work so I like having the taller gears.Even with the 3 inch longer swingarm and a USD front end this still happens all the time!
