You will probably find that you will use more fuel

Changing transmission ratio

I was going to say about fuel but then I though ... the CR is not great in that respect anyways, especially when out for fun so a couple MPG less might not be an issue. For me, moving up from a smaller engine, the CR ratios are a great improvement and much more flexible with less gear changes required but I can see our point about selecting 3rd and 4th at certain speeds as I seem to misjudge them sometimes.

Well, actually I ride a bike for having fun not for saving fuel... and if it comsumes 10 percent more it doesnt matter, even if the range decreases by a few miles

I hope your dealer has used a proper Honda front sprocket and not an after market one as Honda ones have a cush drive that protects the splines on the output drive shaft.  at least your Honda dealer fitted it, so you may have recourse if damage to the output shaft occurs
