You Ask/You Answer: How can I improve acceleration?

Published: 14 May 2013

"I'd like a bit more acceleration from my Honda CB1000R – and I'm not really bothered about top speed (so long as it'll still cruise at 90mph). What's the best way to change the gearing – bigger rear sprocket, or smaller front sprocket, or a mix of both?

"Also, will I need a new chain, and will my speedo read incorrectly as a result of changing the gearing?"

Your answer could help. The best will be printed in MCN.
