What about riding below sea level? Like in lowest area on earth, around deadsea in Jordan. Do we get or lose power going the other direction?
Not sure if +1 in rear sprocket will make wheelbase like stock. But it will make number of teeth even on both sprockets, which is not recommended. There was a separate thread on that elsewhere on here.so...
If you take a new bike without any stretch in the chain and you measure the wheelbase or take the measurement from the rear axle marks(lines) and keep the slack in the chain in the same position for the -1 +1 change, then will that equate to the same wheelbase or measurement from the rear lines next to the axle nut.?
I'm thinking the wheelbase will be the same as stock or awfully close if you go -1 +1 with the above considerations.
-1 alone is terrible for tip in. feels like a pig.
I have tried to get that answer.Okay, the question now is what combination of sprockets or pitch will gain acceleration without reducing the wheelbase.
Is not 7mm shorter wheelbase is about what d40 mentioned he got his wheelbase with only -1 and removing one chain link? So I'm confused on why you need +1 in rear to get that. Nonetheless, keep us posted, curious what you find out.I will let you know once my Alpha rear 46T 525 HP4 sprocket arrives.
It will bring the wheelbase in shorter non the less but by what. I'm figuring about 7mm. which for me is back to my best position.
And yes how the heck does BMW formulate the stock wheelbase, because it feels perfect.
Exactly mate.Much like engine ticking.
Did you ever get your sprockets and chain installed? I'm just wondering where your wheel base length ended up with -1/+1.I have gone -1 on my 15rr and have found it lengthens the wheelbase by approximately 7mm. which is coincidently one length on the swingarm adjuster lines. (line to line)
I have just now ordered a rear 46T 525 to fit the HP wheels from Alpha racing in Germany. This extra tooth in the rear +1 from the OEM 45T should bring me back to approximately the stock wheelbase setting.
As the -1 alone makes the 15rr turn in like a Pig, and is basically a **** feeling for fine control.
Someone on this thread mentioned that going -1 up front created about a 2cm increase in the wheelbase from stock. I believe this may be incorrect and am now worried that my workings out for the increase was incorrect.
Could someone on here with a bigger brain please correct me or the other guy.
-1 up front on a 15rr is worth about 7mm in wheelbase increase from stock... is this correct or incorrect.?....
Some of you guys on here are pure genius.
going -1 up front and +1 in the rear with the stock chain, to me should equate to almost the same wheelbase length as stock...RIGHT.... hope I'm right.
