Stock gearing is 15/44 on the "S" model and 15/45 on the non "S" model and the "S" model is geared for better MPG. This means that there are 15 teeth on the front (aka countershaft) sprocket and 44 or 45 on the wheel sprocket. Adding teeth means removing the old sprocket and replacing it with one that has one or more additional teeth. Putting a larger sprocket on the rear will make the bike accelerate faster; putting a larger one on the front will make it accelerate slower (and maybe increase MPG) . "removing" one tooth on the front is equivalent to adding 3 on the rear.
