Well I think all the newer bikes have such tall first gears. I mean 100 mph in first on most of the liter bikes... do we really need that? However, if you shorten the first gear the rideability becomes even harder to find!
Oh yeah the new sprockets even with a little change will do a whole lot to the way the bike reacts to the throttle... my 9R was very noticeable when I went +1 in the rear and -1 in the front!!jeeps84 said:Nothing some new sprockets cant cure. :2cents:
