I have just purchased two new front sprockets, one tooth up from stock and one tooth down.

Does anyone know which way each is going to affect the gearing? Like which one will make 1st taller and which one will make 1st shorter?

I went with the front sprockets because they are much cheaper.

One tooth larger will make first gear taller. One tooth smaller will make first gear unridable!!

I forgot, one tooth on the countershaft sprocket equals about 4 teeth on the rear sprocket.
