Changing gearing

Hi all 

If I change the sprockets for -1 +2 rear can I keep the same size chain? Or -1 just want bike to pick up quicker, my chain is pretty much new.
Also Hairy rs quick action throttle, they any good? Worth buying?
Getting board so need to liven it up a bit :smile
Cheers mark

What

bike are we talking about ??????

Some smaller bikes with poor acceleration can benefit from a engine sprocket change(usually one tooth less would suffice)to give a better get up and go,and no gear chain change would be needed as adjustment on the adjuster should be enough.

Don't get me wrong it's quick, but I get board pretty quick and this is the 6th bike in the last 2 years.

I want to keep this one for a bit so I want to liven it up a bit.
