New Sprockets

I'm wondering what sprockets people have used when it came time on their HyperS?

TIA,
Eric

I change the rear sprocket from 45 to 41.
At 85 mph the rpm is 550 lower. Suites me fine.
The 5th gear is now as the previous 6th gear.

That is really bad fuel economy. I "crash" down to 45MPG when I average 80 on the interstates. Normally I'm averaging 54MPG when I'm going a more reasonable 60-70MPH.

jerdog,

Did you put in a 14T up front to make 1st and 2nd gear less "twitchy"?

TIA,
Eric

Howdy!

I would not say the 14 tooth make is any less twitchy but you could ride it and judge for yourself. I put the 14 tooth on for more bottom end and a better launch off the line which it seems to have done. I avoid the highway at all costs but the RMS are noticeably more at say 80 mph but not disgusting IMO.

I've noticed the 5-6% increase in the displayed speed on the speedometer. The dealer spoke with their Ducati tech and was told that it cannot be adjusted. Has anyone figured out a combination of changing gears and tires that can accommodate for the 5-6%?
