I'd say they pretty much work opposite of each other. Are you more interested in acceleration or lower RPM cruising and more MPG?whats the best set up for speed and mpg?if i put a slip on and shim the needles will that help if i change my gearing?this is my first bike so im new at this stuff,im a diesel mechanic so gas isnt really my thing unless its a fourwheeler.
What is the current top speed and at what RPM? If you are running out of revs (at redline) gearing up might give you more speed. If not, you aren't going to get any more. But gearing up significantly will make day to day city riding a pain and make acceleration painfully slow.i think im going to try a 16t front and just stick with that,ive had a few buddies tell me they make a 17t and that would be best but idk.i want to go faster,not take off but top end,im scared im gonna end up blowing my motor do to high rpms so i always ride at about 6-8 grand.i always maintain my bike after every ride,i give it a bath and lube up every moving part but im do for a oil change and im wanting to do syn oil but i dont know what kind to use.thanks so much for all the help
If you are looking to go 120 mph, you may want to look at what Racer Xjkv the top speed is 100mph at 10500 to 11 grand and i just want it to go about 120 so when im at 80 its only at about 8 grand and ill try the 16t ill get my ninja buddies to help me with the cutting.
