Recommended gearing?

Just got my Hyperstrada and have the stock gearing. I've heard a lot of people say they recommend changing the stock front sprocket to a 14T for better usability around town. Others say they wish there was something in between a 14 and a 15 tooth as the 14 changes it too much. So I'm guessing for that to get a middle result you could also change the rear sprocket?

Just curious what you guys have found as the ideal gearing setup for the Hyperstrada to find out which parts I should change to get the best drivability out of it.

Thanks!

Cool! Do you know where I can buy the 14T sprocket from?

Okay, thanks! That's pretty cheap! You sure it wasn't made out of playdough?

Why are you guys messing with the gearing? I have changed the gearing on my other Duc's as they were very long and it transformed them, but I find the Hyper has the most practical gearing, especially for town use out of any Duc I have ever ridden.

I just want it to be easier to ride around town. Want to be able to go through a corner at an intersection in 2nd gear without worrying about the revs dropping too low and needing to drop into 1st or ride the clutch.
