All of that JUST from switching to a 15t front sprocket??? You were running the 46t rear?johnnybravo08 said:The only change that I made from stock is that I went with a 15 tooth front sprocket. When I was going down the highway the RPMs were up really high at 70 MPH I was at almost 8000 I think. Because of the high RPMs I decided to put a 520 16 tooth on.
Almost sounds like he's running in 5th instead of 6th.crx81 said:FAZR6 stated with the 15/48t setup 70mph should = 7,000rpm. If I understand correctly, going to a 15/50t would increase the rpms at 70mph. I guess I'm confused at how a 15/46 would have higher rpms at 70mph than the 15/48... shouldn't it have lower?
FAZR6... I know you are doing the track thing now, but are you still using the bike for commuting or touring? I was sold on the 15/48t setup from your post in the previous thread, but johnnybravo08 sounds like he isn't happy with it because the rpms seem too high for daily life/traffic. What gives? Am I misinterpreting something or what?
