16 up front?

Thinking about putting a 16 on the front sprocket and keeping 43 on the rear. I do alot of highway riding and hoping this will make that easier.

Riding on the cheap I am going to put Kenda 761s on the bike as well.

Oh Riding a 2000

Any tips or suggestions would be a help. Thanks

The 16 tooth sprocket subject has been beat to death lately. Do a search and you'll get all the info you need. As they say "just do it".

Kenda 761 tires are great tires. I say that because I use them too.

My Kaw Barn - 2004 KLR, 2006 Concours (sold), 1997 Bayou 400.
