Sprocker Selection

Several of those who have changed the gearing have gone to 
a two tooth bigger rear sprocket to gear it down slightly.  
It raises the cruising RPM by about 300 rpm.  The added 
advantage of this is it also shortens the wheelbase by 
nearly an inch and helps quicken the steering without any 
loss of high speed stability.

I'm guessing if you went up one tooth on the front you 
would lower the cruising RPM by 400 or so.
