I have a new Versys-X 300 with ABS.
I replaced the front sprocket with a 15 tooth so now the gearing is 15/46.
I have had no issues with engine warning lights or gear indicator not working.
All appears as normal and the speed at 100km/hr feels no different than before (haven't hooked a gps up yet).
Is it because I only changed the gearing slightly that it hasn't affected anything.
If I were to change the front to 16 tooth or rear to 42, would I start to get these issues everyone is having.
I want to change the gearing again as its reving at 7000rpm at 100km/hr and 6500rpm at 100km/hr would be more ideal for the type of riding I do (long distance)

Hello.
I have just bought my first every green bike.
And am very impressed with it so far (expect for the hard seat and low gearing)

What are my options for rear sprockets.
Does the ninja 300 rear sprocket fit the Versys-X 300.

Cheers for clearing that up.
I definitely don't want the issues if I change gearing to more extreme to factory.
Think its best I leave it then.
I wonder if the rear is changed to 43 or 44 tooth if the issues then happen.
