Time for New Sprockets

Good evening guys, I know this has been done before but I am about to need new sprockets/chain on my 1199. I will go for the 41 tooth conversion but has anyone gone down to the 14 tooth front sprocket as well or will that be overkill? I have looked at the old threads and it looks like the AFAM seems to be the conversion of choice on here but any advice from those that have done this would be greatly appreciated.......Cheers.

14-41 IMO would be wayyyyy overkill and you would probably hate riding it. Very twitchy throttle and difficult to control. Down 1 in front is like going up 2.5 or 3 in the rear so doing both that is basically throwing a +5 in the rear. Do ome or the other but definitely dont do both.
Thanks from JonT

As said above, that will likely be far too short gearing and not much fun to ride. In my opinion the 1199R stock gearing is the perfect all rounder for the 1199. The only times I've wanted different is a few very fast tracks such as Mugello and Imola where I could have done with having the original longer gearing of the early 1199.
Thanks from JonT

The earlier 1199S have longer gearing than the later bikes so it makes sense to change.

To my understanding all 1199 except for the R has similar gearing. I have a late 2014 1199S and it came with sprockets 15-39.

I don't know about the 1199, but I only went 1 up rear (to 15-40) because my local shop didn't have 39 in stock. Still wheelies in 4th and headshakes in 5th...

Just go up to 41 teeth on the rear sprocket

Just go up to 41 teeth on the rear sprocket. I put a 45 tooth rear sprocket on my 1299 and I almost couldn't shift fast enough to get to 2nd gear before the rev limiter kicked in. The engine braking increases with larger sprocket size, too. I would like to have even less engine braking than I get with EBC 3.

Nothing wrong with the stock gearing, had the front end come up after shifting into 5th at 150, and it would ruin the bike for the canyons I ride.

I'm with the guy above, let the track dictate the gears.
