View Full Version : What gear ratio do you run?

What gear ratio does everyone run, and what is your top speed (at what RPM). I know this has been covered before, but I'd kinda' like to see a list... I am running 13/45 and have a top speed of about 80mph with pretty good accelleration.

The stock spedo is off by at least 5 mph, i have checked this with a GPS. and it becmes more off as you mod your bike and get hight top speeds. I have 14/45 gearing and I top out at 83.4MPh on the gps at about 14k RPM. the tock spedo says im doin about 90 tho.

i found mine pretty accurate :D but then its not running heavily modified....

I have all the basic mods done and added a tooth in the front and dropped one in the rear and mine will rev out at about 80-83.... and it will run a consistent 75mph for quite some time

larger tyres wont really add speed just more drag.... so in theory narrower tyres are faster straight like....

yup... but he only has a modded exhaust and goes almost faster than me and I have spent alot of cash :rolleyes: :mad: :p

i dont belive his speedo is right as the stock bike wouldnt do that unless u were 1ft tall and weighted 100grams :P

Taller tires will add top speed. But it will also show the speedometer reading slower.
