Default Motor pinion help

I am new to RC and have no idea what size motor pinion I need.

I am looking to gear up due to my motor is hot and esc is cool and would like to equalize motor and esc temps. I have a 16t pinion and would like to get a 17t. Thank you for your time!

I have found this site to be quite useful when calculating gear ratios:
