...and if you have a GT 6th gear, there is zero compromise either. It almost makes me wish I had an oil leak or similar to give me a reason to dig into the tranny.
I think I fell into the category "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". But I have peace of mind I now know what's in there and the taller 6th gear is an improvement. I haven't felt the need to change the front sprocket though. The bike feels like it would flip in first if you're not careful and easily lofts the front in second and probably even in 3rd if you wanted to. It's all the torque. But I'm more a touring guy so the 19 works fine for me. I'm also a bit of a lightweight so take-offs are no problem.
So Bill, do it!
Well I finally took my Sprint into the shop for some long needed service and repair. Since mid September, I needed to get the regulator replaced, valves adjusted, plugs, air filter, new chain and sprockets, and a few little things. I am also having heated grips installed. My Sprint should be ready to ride on Friday, just in time for a day ride out into RI, CT and parts of western MA on Saturday with the crew.
According to GearingCommander.com, my current gearing is 10mph slower top speed than if it had a GT 6th gear. Some mornings, that's all that's needed to make it to work on-time
