How do i change the gearing on a 2005 sportster 1200c

if its chain, try different sprockets, bigger front will give lower rpms ,and pull longer ,and be faster

if you go rear, smaller will lower rpms, and be faster, bigger rear will be quicker but top speed will not be as fast
not sure if there is a speed sensor , that needs to be changed,
i have the same bike, and am wanting the bigger front pully stock is 29 i think , and there is a 30,and a 32 tooth pully for the belt drive models! sweet product , not belt change either!, but like i said i read something about a speed sensor that needs something to correct it

Can you change tranny gears to decrease rpm's on highway? Or maybe change sprockets.

You can add teeth to the front sprocket or take teeth off of the rear sprocket. In the case of your bike , I do not think there is a 17 tooth front available so your best option would be to shorten your chain and drop from the 44 tooth rear sprocket to 40 tooth or a 36 tooth rear sprocket. That would be like adding one or two teeth to the front sprocket. Your stock is 16/44 so decrease from there. Be sure to ID your chain, get a chain breaker, and a new master link.

I wanna make ma bike more faster

The easiest cheapest way to get more power to the rear wheel of a chain drive motorcycle is to install a smaller counter shaft sprocket than the one that is on the bike right now. Usually one tooth less than what is on the bike right now will do. Example: 15 to 14 or 13 to 12 The top speed of your bike may drop from 130 mph to 120 mph but most people don't get to use that anyway. This simple mod may allow you to raise the front wheel in higher gears.

Derestrict? Do you mean you want it to go faster. These bikes are not designed to fly. My daughter learned to ride on one of these bikes. It barely went 60 mhp. Its not a good idea to raise the rpm on such a small motor . Enjoy it as it is or get a bigger bike.

I want to remove the baffels from stock 06 Sportster mufflers

not a good idea unless you upgrade the air cleaner to a high flow or screaming is tuned to run with restricted pipes..if you change one you need to change the other..with the 06 you could also need a download or fuel management system..

How to increase top end speed - 2007 Kawasaki Ninja EX250R

you can change the sprockets.If you go to a 16 tooth front sprocket. two teeth on a front sprocket is like droping 4 teeth on the rear. You could drop 2 teeth on the rear sprocket but a 43 tooth is probably harder to find. the usual choices for front are 14,15,16 tooth.
For the rear they are 44,45,46 tooth

The way to remeber gearing changes is on REAR sprocket is smaller=faster and larger=slower top end.
the FRONT is OPPOSITE to the rear smaller=slower and bigger=faster.
You may have to lengthen or shorten the chain depending whjch way you go.

I have a 06 buell xb12r muffler install now runs like ****

there are a couple of options. one is the Buell "race ecm" the other is to use a software package like ECMspy to re-program the ecm. This has been gone over in-dept over at the power commander and other "piggyback" tuners do not work well with the buell, and your is almost certainly running very lean.

My gsxr 600 srad 97 modle it runs fine when cold but when warm it splutters when in low revs and it back fires now an again

i have just had the same problem with my 99 srad 600. there is only one soloution to this and it is not a dyno, that just makes thing worse, the flat spot just off idle is due to it beign on carbs and i have put slightly shorter inlet tracts onto the carbs which helps them breeth easier this coupled with a new front sproket which is one tooth less than standard will get you over the stutter problem and will help the bike at lower revs as the sproket inceases the rev range right from the off throttle position, but be careful as the lower gearing makes for some good wheelies if your over keen on the gas. lol.
