Not to mention it pulls just fine above 60.
To expand on this a little, I am currently running a 17T / 36T and not having any problems. I only am using 6th at speeds above 60 mph. 72 mph is about 6000 rpm. I shift less around town and have not seen a down side. If I keep the bike in the right RPM range, acceleration is not a problem.

I've been running a 15t drive sprocket for about a week now and for the type of riding i do, which is commuting on streets with a speed limit of 45mph I am really liking the taller gearing. I take it on the expressway occasionally with speeds up to 65 mph and can appreciate the differrence on how the engine seems more relaxed. Taking off from a stop, 1st gear and second gear are much less frantic and the pull that i get is not that much different from stock but improved. I don't think I'll be going down on the rear sprocket because the 15t is enough of a change for me. I just started using "gas tracker" app to see what my FE is. I must say I enjoy riding my cbr 250r a little bit more now. No regrets here!

Can you please tell me where you got a 17 tooth front sprocket. A link would be nice or even a phone number if you got it from a shop.
I already have a 36 tooth rear sprocket and a chain that I want to put on and I already just take off in second gear all the time. I just really want to cruise on the highway at lower revs

I have one bike with a 13 tooth for city and one with 15 tooth more for highway. I do ride the 15 tooth in the city and the 13 tooth on the highway but they struggle in some aspects. I prefer a 13 tooth on the highway more than a 15 tooth in the city. I feel like you really need to over rev the engine and drag the clutch much longer to start out with a 15. Other than that the 15 tooth is nice.

Bought a rental 15 tooth sprocket from 4wheelonline. Well the product is self is great, but transferring the power band is really sucks.
