LAST set was from "TwistedThrottle Canada", but I have used "Rocky Mountain ATV" and been quite happy w/ them and their prices.

+1 for Rocky Mountain ATV, especially for OEM parts and tires. You can find other stuff a little cheaper on Amazon, but usually not by very much.

So what's the stock tooth count on the front sprocket? And if you drop a tooth you gain on the top end right?

A increase from stock 15 tooth = a reduction in RPM per KM/HR , by about 6% with 16 T, dropping a tooth is usually done for off road riding when you want more torque . Usually you are far better off increasing the rear sprocket for off road, as dropping the counter shaft sprocket by a tooth reduces the number of teeth transferring the same horsepower and can lead to reduced chain life.

What he said. What I was taught is -1 tooth in the front is the same as +3 teeth in the rear. It's the same for +1/-3.
