17-47
« on: September 19, 2019, 08:14:28 PM »
i didn't like the low 6th gear on my 2018 XR, changed to a 17t front sprocket, but still felt too busy for my liking on m/ways, so tried 17t front with 47t rear, more relaxed now in 6th, 80 mph equals 5k rpm, it needs more throttle to pull away, but no need to excessively slip clutch and doesn't bog down as i thought it may, overall i'm happy with it. a compromise really, lost a bit of zip in turn for longer legs...

 i think 17/48 may be the optimum, but i couldn't find a 48t steel, only alloy
