Greetings!
I just installed a two-tooth larger rear sprocket on my 2019 Street Scrambler. It seemed that it was geared too high from the factory. For it's intended purpose, (less-than highway speeds) I felt that it would benefit from a lower (higher numerically) gear ratio.
I am surprised at the difference! Much easier to leave a stop, and much better when at low speeds, such as for light off-roading. The bike seems to accelerate harder and seems more "spunky".
I do some highway riding, and I was just under 4200 RPM at 80 MPH, so no real loss at top. I will test and see if it will still do the "ton" when time permits.

I did not have to install a longer chain. I was able to move the axle forward enough to accommodate the larger sprocket.
I recommend this modification!
