Has anyone upgraded their sprockets on their fz6r? I'm looking to do my chain soon so I figured do the sprockets while I'm there. I read recently adding a 15 tooth front sprocket instead of the stock 14 will add a better highway experience. Any input would be great.

Stay stock... Always swap sprockets with chains. It'll destroy your new chain. I went down a tooth in the rear due to lack of parts and got stuck 150 miles from home. Stay stock for sure.
I tried -1 in the front and +1 in the rear but found it to be too short.
Now running -1/-3 and it's the equivalent of +1 in the front
If you read, o.p is talking about changing his sprockets while changing the chain
I understand that. And I was suggesting he stay stock.
Anything you do will be a trade-off. In the last year I changed chain and sprockets with OEM stock and still find even 75-80MPH freeway speeds are comfortable in the 6500-6800 RPM range. I'm in the low end of the useful power band there and actually like it since I can hammer the throttle to 8500RPM without shifting and gain a good 20MPH if I need to.
Stock front is 16t
For lower rpm stay stock rear and go 17t front.. lower highway rpm and actually makes speedo more accurate
Speedometer becomes accurate, but odometer becomes less. It's odd how they programmed the cluster.
Thanks for your help guys
