who has gone down in sprocket size? just wondering how the bike's torque is effected. want a little more top speed out of my bike, but if it totally kills the torque then f it
you also ran out of HP, the 650 can't push any more air out of the wayI've gone 2+ in the front and -1 in the rear and like it. (17/43) At 5000 rpm, I'm doing an indicated 80 mph in 6th gear with the stock front tire 120/60/17. I've only had the bike up to 130+, but ran out of clear road.
Impossible to say for certain without a dyno chart for your bike. You need to gear so that it just barely pulls up to the power peak, so you need to know exactly where that is.If 130 is about the max an sv can go due to power, then what would be the optimal gearing that would max out at 130?
