What is ideal sprocket change to drop the rpm down a bit--6000 at 140kmph is just eating fuel

Guts and Gas in Deco park.
They are open over the weekend and give excellent service.

 Its to find the best option to reduce the rpm just a tad -Standard is 16-42
We still have a few thousand  km to go before they need replacement

Changing sprocket sizes does nothing to improve fuel consumption.  Giving it longer legs with a smaller rear sprocket should , in theory, also give you lower fuel consumption.  This is however negated by the fact that the engine is working harder to maintain the same speed.
