I have had the Legend for a short time now and am loving it. I have enjoyed the short ratio acceleration but am feeling a little short with the top end of the fifth ratio. The engine has so much more in it to be limited by gearing.
My questions (stock 2000 Legend): What would be the anticipated top speed with the sixth gear addition? where can I get the parts and for how much? Anybody in or near Tampa FL USA know how to do the conversion and willing to help me (do the work while I scratch my head, not a transmission guy)?
I've read several posts about the conversion but the popular reason to convert seems to be economy at highway speeds. I, of course, will benefit from the lower RPMs at speed as well.
My goal is to raise the top speed of the bike without lowing the final drive ratio (sprocket).
+1 on the 18 front sprocket, gives plenty of speed and comfortable cruising.
Yes am wondering re how fast your thinking also, mine pulls easy two up in 5th from 4000 to 6000 on overtake but much more than that I get a punch in the ribs.
Took it to 180kph once but the corners were comming up too fast.
Just once :-)
