I'm currently riding on the stock sprocket I believe 14tooth. I'm 6'4 300lbs more incentive to drop weight lol anyways. I'm trying to get a little more pull on my z but don't really want to sacrifice my rope speed I max out at about 53mph. Or should I go 15 and maybe get a little more top end out of her also will this effect my wheelies

So if I jump up two teeth I'll get some more grunt but lose about 4mph what if I jump one tooth and help split the difference
If you add two teeth in the back, you'll have a bit more acceleration and in your case, you won't loose any top speed at all since you can only reach 53mph with the stock sprocket ( your top speed should still be 53mph or even a bit higher ).

Let us know the result!

I would prefer the ability for a few extra MPH on the top end. More throttle fixes accelerating from a dead stop. And losing weight is free.... intact, it saves you money!

I bought a RK chain with super light sprockets
13T/32T Rode that around for a few weeks then slapped the stock front sprocket back in 14T
AND ITS PERFECT! way better acceleration now
has way more bottom end pull without sacrificing much of your top end.
