Okay hopefully two things will come out of this, the proper termenology for one and two, an answer :)

When I bought my SV it was my first bike ever. I'm slowly learning the mechanical side of things. One thing the seller said was he had put on a new sprocket (whatever the thing is the chain goes around) that would up the MPG.

My question is, first is that called a sprocket but second, does that mean he added or took away a tooth from the stock one? Oh finally, does that mean more or less torque, if he increased MPG?

Good info thank you. I will count the teeth when I leave Starbucks. Gotta have priorities.

Most people change both sprockets at the same time? Or just one or the other. Are there pros/cons to either approach?
