I'm going +2R as well. Already purchased a new 15T front, 43T rear.
Italians must think there's no speed limits in North-America as all their bikes are geared too long, especially the Panigale.
I went -1F on the Pani and +2R at the first service on my new Multistrada.
Has any one done a 15/43 on a 1200R?
Chain length 110 or 111?

However, if you already know what you like, then yes, changing the rear would be better especially for the Monster since I believe -1F or +3R equivalent is too much.

|marvin||I personally would never buy a 14T front sprocket. Sure it drops your gear ratio but I always go +2 or 3 on the rear. More expensive but better. It takes a lot of p9wer to wrap a chain around a tight little 14T ! Evferything wears faster and hard on everything.|

|biggwigg||I put a 14t on mine and hated the feel of the bike and went back to 15t. To me I felt like the bike lost the mid to top end launch and I was slamming thru the gears like crazy. Although it did seem to help with the bottom end a little but not enough that I wanted to keep it on.|

As summarily mentioned, tire circumferences are different.
For those who want to match the Diavel's 15/43 as close as possible on the Monster, you should go with a 200/55 rear tire.
The 200/55 ( stock OEM size on the M1200R) is nearly identical in circumference to the 240/45. In fact, the 200/55 is a smidgen larger.
The 190/55 has a smaller circumference than both the 200/55 and the 240/45 and is "theoretically" equivalent to adding about a 1/2 rear tooth on a stock Diavel.

Having gone from a 14t to.a 15t on my M696, then from a 15t to a 14t on my M1100, I've gone full circle. My advice is go with what feels right. I kept hitting the rev limiter on the 696, and reverting to a 15t helped. I got tired of slipping the clutch from stops on the M1100, and the 14t fixed that. Plus, in-town riding is transformed. The engine is in the "happy" rev range more often, so much fun! I like it so much I am going with a 14t on my 848 Superbike. Good luck!

didn't know 14t sprockets were such and emotional topic.....
I hope I haven't offended anyone

It's possible. I emailed directly with Driven and they said they don't have it yet. It's possible they gave me the wrong info.
They have the 15t though.
