Its slightly better than stock, and yes it can wheelie more but all humans have a handy wheelie control device on the end of their right arms Its still too tall with 18/45 imo.
The bike feels flat and boring to me with the stock gearing, the 17/43 (very similar to 18/45) was a little better, but still didn't feel like a thousand should, i was still disappointed in the difference from the 675.
Now with 17/45 it actually has proper punch like a big bike should.
...The stock '07 chain is 106 links, so if I move from a 42T to a 43T is there a way to know what length I'll need?
|The later model S3's with the 43T also have a 190 profile rear tyre I think... I believe mine's 180... is having the 180 going to factor into the chain length I need?|
|If the speedo is around about 6% high at stock, me moving to a 43T probably doesn't justify messing with the speedo calibration at all... my speedo will still be, what, 3-4% above actual speed... my odo will be a teeny bit off, showing less km's than I've actually done, but only slightly... is that correct?|
