So we all know about this sprocket change.

I just wanted to ask if I was riding wrong or what not.

1) Is it just me or is it really really hard to open the throttle little enough to go below <15 mph? I feel like the smallest twist I can give is already going 15+

Aloha brah,

I'd just cruise in 2nd or 3rd gear in that case with almost no throttle.

One thing I hate about the islands, speed limits are too slow! (55 on the H3? What is that?) Even all thru Ewa Beach its like 25...on 6 lane roads LOL

It should be LESS of an issue with the sprocket change.

Do something today that your future self will thank you for.

Are you really doing 15? Without a speedohealer or similar it will go to 15 when you might be doing 5-8mph.

This. When you change your gearing your speedometer is going to be off slightly

I've a speedo healer and Ive had a bike before without and I know and can feel the difference. Like I know how 10mph feels and 20 feels etc.

Its easy to go slow with throttle and clutch.
just thought if it was doable with jsut throttle

I'm lost because I don't know why people get the sprocket conversion in the first place. To reduce throttle sensitivity? OP, why'd you do it?

I didn't. Bought the bike recently and the previous owner had it set up to "make faster acceleration"
