Found a good deal of ebay, going to 520, down one in front, up one in the back. Got it for $149.00 (includes shipping), wondering what kinda of difference that will make cruising down the highway.

So what I'm asking is, has anyone here messed with the gearing on there SV?

The way I understand it is, 1 down in front is = to 3 up in back. The combo you are changing to will give you lots of low end acceleration (say wheelies like a squid on crack) and dorp your top end by a few MPH. Your RPM at any speed will be increased over what it was prior to changing gearing. Your fuel economy will drop too. Have fun wiyh your new found oomph, but be careful!

Think it's gonna be aluminum......Went for the lighter set for quicker acceleration.
