If you don't care about limiting your real top speed to like 140mph, you can go +3 on the rear sprocket, and if you have the $$, do a 520 conversion at the same time, replacing both sprockets and the chain.

It adds a lot of punch to the bike. This is what I ran at trackdays, since I didn't care about the speedometer there, but if you plan to ride it on the street with that gearing, you'll need something like a speedo-healer.

Also, check this out: http://www.gearingcommander.com/
when i bought my bike the guy told me it was -1+2 and a 520 chain. It has a pc and a healer. How can i tell if is -1+2 and 520 chain?

count the number of teeth on the sprocket and compare to a stock sprocket. i belive it's 41 teeth stock for us(us and european versions have different sprockets. it's actually hard to get the wheel up with the stock sproket)

The chain pitch number, 520, may be stamped on some or all of the links in the chain. Also, stock teeth count will be 16/42, front and rear respectively. That site I linked to already has all the stock info on your bike, and is easy to configure to test out new gearing, ie, it will tell you your approx. top speed in each gear, depending on the sprockets you install.

To see what is on your bike, just do what Cosmo said and count the number of teeth of each sprocket already on the bike. And watch your fingers.  :)
