Reviving an oldie but good topic.
Following two years of riding the Monster 1200R, I too find its gearing a bit long.
Since it's just about time for me to change the 525 chain, I'm taking the opportunity to up the size of the rear sprocket from 41T to 43T (+2R) as well.
I also purchased the OEM 43T rear sprocket for the Diavel which fits the Monster 1200.
Will be installing it soon while it's in the shop for a fork oil change.

What size chain length (links) have you used for a 15/43 combination on a 1200R ?
