The short answer is I don't know. I'll put my sprocket on this weekend. From what I heard, from others who have made the switch, it only gets you 500 rpm's or so. I don't think its going to change much of anything, on road or off, but I have to try it. Others on the ADV Forum have gone 1 up on the front and 2 or more down on the rear. They are mostly highway riders. I fall somewhere in the middle. I would leave it alone, but I just rode to an off road area and doing 9000 rpm's at 75 or 80 seems a bit much. Bottom line is like Wildemonster says, Off road leave it alone, on road raise the gears.
