i got 160 miles before i geared the bike, now its 130-140 indicated, which is more like 115. 15/45 gears sucks gas.

I know the spedo is optimisitc, but I can't see how a manufacturer would be allowed to have a "pessimistic" odometer. Has anyone checked the accuracy of their odometer?

> 15/45 gears sucks gas.

I want to do the same sproket conversion, but I commute too much. I can't afford it. But, if I could swap out 6th and turn it into an overdrive with a 15/45, it'd be perfect. I think 4000 revs at 80 indicated sounds about right.

um, trust me, the speedo is off, 15%. i used the gearing calculator. like i said i have 15/45 gears. and the odometer reading comes from the same reading that the mph comes from. its off to, the same amount. and its not pessimistic, its optomistic. it thinks i get more MPH and MPG than i really do.
oh, good luck finding a new 6th gear designed for what you said, especially if you can't afford the gas for 15/45s. just leave it stock, it still goes like hell, i just wanted second gear to be higher in the revs for the canyons i ride.

I agree, the speedo is waaaaaay off. I was asking about the odometer. Do you think that, too, is higher than actaul?

It's more like "wasteful" versus "can't afford". Poor choice of words.

Odometer and speedometer receive information from the same sensor.

I get 130-140mpg of mixed highway and street , once reserve kicks in about another 30 miles.... under a 100mpg is crazy is your idle set high, or are you spending lots of time with the throttle wide open....if your trying to conserve get into six gear as soon as you can. :D
