Note; I may hit speeds of 55-65MPH very rarely?
My KLR fanatic mechanic regularly drops a tooth on the front, (to a 14) and rides some hardcore woods. He claims the advantage to this is that the slack can be taken out with the adjusters, so changing chains is unnecessary. One tooth is the front is equal to three in the back.
