Like some have mentioned, I run stock front and 43T rear, mainly to get the speedometer accurate. It is a little slower off the line.

45 Tooth 520 chain steel

I don't want to sacrifice torque , and 1 tooth rear is all I need, my GPS displays my speed. Looking for winter 2020, already have the chain. Thanks for posting, that 1 tooth is a minor torque reduction, which has no effect on the chain, similar to a 16T front, just not as drastic. I am close to 30,000 KM on OEM sprockets and second chain. Next chain gets new sprockets, I am looking at putting another 10,000 KM on this summer.

Glen - I run stock 15/46 gearing AND a 150/70 x 17 rear (SHINKO E705, IF that makes a difference...). My speedo (on the '15 LT) agrees w/ my GPS w/in one or two kms/hr.

Just sayin'....

Your diameter is 25.28 in. my PR-5 is 24.56, so yes my speed is within 2 to 3 KM/HR, but high by that amount.
