The are a number of these here about such, I bought a did chain and afam sprockets with one more tooth at the front. One of my better decisions, but depends on what kind of riding you do.

The extra tooth makes the Speedo read just about read on rather than 6% over art least in my case, but also the bike is much more relaxed at speed. A small amount of acceleration is lost but mine will still lift the front wheel in first. If I wanted max acceleration I'd buy a sports bike, which I'm probably going to do, as something for the weekend.

It was only When I replaced the chain and sprocket last year I realised that my bike had been fitted with a 17 tooth front sprocket by the previous owner. Previous to changing the gearing back to standard I was using about 1 litre of fuel less per tank than my friend on his CBF 1000 with standard gearing. Over last summers ride outs and tour I kept an eye on how much we were using when we came to fill up at petrol stops and our fuel consumption was roughly the same. I have just changed back to a 17 tooth sprocket so will let you know what affect this will have on both bikes later in the season.

BE WARNED!!!!!!!!!
The Chinese are now faking all the best branded chains and sprockets, if you buy online make sure it is from a reputable dealer, the market is flooded at the moment.
Take care.
