Upgraded the front sprocket

I installed a 16T front sprocket in place of the stock 15T on my 03 Marauder...13 bucks plus shipping through Dennis Kirk. It was a very easy swap that took less than a half hour. It made the engine RPM's noticeably lower at 50mph and didn't seem to take anything away down low. At higher speeds, 65mph and above it still feels like the RPM's could be lower.
I'm going to order the 17T sprocket and see how it rides then. I think with the V&H exhaust system, K&N's and jet kit I have on it already, the bike should perform well with the 17T sprocket.

I have been told that a combo of a 16T front and a 44T rear works great with the after market exhaust and jet kit. Thanks, Stan.
That is why i haven't done anything. I have been told by a lot of people that changing the sprockets is supposed to work real good, but by people who haven't done it themselves. Now that we are getting some good info, thanks Matt, I will be able to make a better decision.
