Sprocket change?

Riding a 2011 GSX1250FA and since I don't ride hard and do mostly highway miles (2 lane and some interstate), I was wondering if changing the front or rear sprocket...or both for that matter....would provide higher gas mileage. I get about 40 now, but the way I ride, I was thinking it should be higher than that. Would I go lower in the front to reduce my rpms?

What are the pros and cons of this?

Higher in the front or lower in the back will reduce your rpm
