I am using 15/44 sprockets with the standard transmission 5th is about where I want it for my riding but 1st is too high for tight stuff. Dirk from ACT suggested I try 14/47 with the new gears, so I will try that and see how it feels, but I will try 14/44 first because I hate changing sprockets!
It is good to see someone else putting their money where their mouth is.
I reckon that you'll definitely want 14/47 or maybe even lower. The ACT has a very tall fifth - roughly one tooth on the counter shaft sprocket when compared to the Nova. On paper at least, the ACT gear set seems to be specifically designed to squeeze every last bit out of the engines torque curve (assuming an E or similar build) with 14/47 gears...
