Hey everyone, I got my grom about a month ago. I ride 50 miles round trip everyday to work and home. I want to go a little faster and lower my rpm's. As I go top speed pretty much the entire commute, should I go with 16t front or go -1 on the rear? This is my first bike so I really don't know much. Thasks in advance

It depends on your weight.
I tried a 16t front and found I lost speed because the engine just couldn't pull it.
-1 on the rear would be the best option IMHO.
Although I went +1 on the rear to improve the acceleration without making it too "buzzy"

125lbs...Fek you less than half me !!!!!!
In that case try the 16t,
If ya can hit the rev-limiter in top on the flat with stock gearing ya may just get away with it.
Defo the cheaper option, nothing to loose by trying.
