Thanks for the input all. I ended up sticking with stock gearing. I still think the 14T could add some fun, but my stock chain didn't last long (7500 miles) before it started kinking and o-rings started squishing out of the side plates. I thought I would run a high quality chain on stock gearing before making any other changes. Only anecdotal but I always cut the chain off with a rotary tool and the stock chain seemed really soft. I'm pretty sure it's not DID's best product. The counter sprocket showed some mild wear but the rear looked pretty good. I put new JT sprockets on anyway but kept the stock rear as a spare... More because I hate throwing stuff out.
