    I'd start around -2 +2
    Everything will be okay in the end. If it's not okay, it's not the end.

    At your size I would go at the very least 15/46 (that equates to -2 and +4 from stock) and see where you are at rpm wise while going through the lights.

    I'm-1+6. From what I've read you wanna gear the bike to finish the top of 6th with the 05-06'sThe added gear helps the bike get out of the hole and makes up for the crappy first gear ratio we got stuck with in the trans
