Lowering front sprocket don't actually lower your track times, in the end your gonna have more problems controlling the bike becuz it will wheelie every time you go hard on the gas, each wheelie cost you several seconds and risk of losing it or highsiding when you come out of a corner.
Better option is to go bigger on the rear if your chain can swallow it.
just my opinion, from 17 to 15 is same as going from 38 to 46in the rear or something.
