    This is a good question, I'm running the same set up including the headers so will be watching with interest.

    well ive just gone -1f +1r so 16f 43r and its just right and you keep the same chain length with this combo .

    standard on my 03 is 17-42 but do check standard gearing as the gearing is different on early and later bikes

    I loved running 16-44(or equiv.)on my 02, with a std chain length, itgave a nice short wheelbase and good for 166+ mph top end. Puts the revs just where you want them for fastish road work

    16/44 is the best combo I have found for 01-03, and as CK said use standard length chain for a short wheel base.
