Hello everyone!

I want to make the bike have shorter gearing. Right now 2nd will go above 60 and I have really no reason to ever shift into 6th without breaking a federal law. I would like 1st 2nd and 3rd especially to be more usable at slow speed for technical riding. Does anyone have experience or recommendations on what kind of gearing i should look into? Change the front, the back, or both? I googled some stuff but I would love to hear firsthand from someone who has done it.

Thanks in advance!
Go two teeth higher on the rear wheel sprocket: 44 vs. 42 teeth. This supplies a decent (4.77%) increase in available torque with a corresponding effect on the speedo and odo readings.
