I am not following you...if you change just 1 tooth on either sprocket you are messing with the gear ratio...that is the point?
Take it easy cowboy...I was asking you to explain further. Changing one tooth on either of the sprockets changes the overall gear ratio...just like changing tire sizes in the rear. I still do not understand ruining the gear ratios...can you explain in more detail?

the engineers at suzuki and every other quad manufactor design the transmission around the stock sprokets
most 4 strokes have 5 gears i can only speculate to why the magic number is 5 but that what it seems to be. anyways they gear the machine to its horse power the ltr tranny would not work very well with a blaster motor. the blaster is a good example to this theorum because it has 6 gears to help it accel quicker (most 2 strokes have 6 gears because they dont have the tourque a 4 stroke has). if you change the sprocket teeth to much (ive been told 2.5 is the max) your going to lose horse power because the gears have become to short. when the gears become to short you dont lose the horse power you just dont use it. and yes when you put 20\" tires on the ltr you should gear it down just to even the tire change out.
