Gearing question for VIR

I am doing VIR North and the Grand Course in two weeks. What gearing do you guys run on the North Course?

15/45 or 15/44 is pretty common I think

wait, you're doing the grand course...LONG straights. Not sure. 15/45 would probably be way too low for that

15/45 works fine on both the north and south straights.

but if the Grand course is combining the two, you might be banging off the limiter way too early.

Isn't 15/45 or 15/44 your Loudon gearing?

Hasn't CCSEX122 raced VIR North with the CCS???

I'd shoot him a pm.

i use 15/46 at NHIS, but with taller profile of the 190 it is more like 15/45. at NHIS I never hit 6th gear. I think I will drop one tooth in the rear and give that a shot

I don't think so, and if you do it'll be too close to the end of the straight to be a big deal.

was just thinking of Mike's buddy Travis (granted it's an R6 and he's hella-fast) geared to hit the limiter at the 1st marker on the North straight.

Just ran the full course last Monday & am geared 15/45. The only place I was coming close was the back straight after the oak tree corner. Coming over the rise just before the brake markers I was just starting to touch the rev limiter in 6th.

I'm running in the Advanced class with Nesba but since you are a strong racer, I"m sure you'll get a better drive out of the oak tree turn & may hit the rev limiter sooner. Either way, you'd be talking maybe a couple hundred feet maxed out at most.

Good luck with it.

Thanks for the feedback. The Grand course does not have as long of a straight as does the full course, so 15/45 should work out great for me....thanks

No . . . I plan on running the 51 tooth sprocket on the rear and going up one tooth on the front. I have too see, however, if the present chain will accomodate that combination.

See you guys there! Just sent in the registration. Dayrock should be going also. By the way, with a 16/45 setup and a good run out of 17 (North course), I would hit the rev limiter just before braking into 1. I think the only straight that is longer in the grand config. is the "back" stretch, running from the esses all the way to T11 of the south course. Sounds like fun!

Just sent all my jazz to Aaron this morning. I'll probably be staying in South Boston on Sunday night. I'll see you boys up there.

Are you guys planning on pitting anywhere in particular or just where ever when you show up? I'll do the trailer drop on Sunday night so lemme know.

I will try and find you guys. Greg usually doesn't show up until the mornings, rolls in 30 minutes before riders meeting, as he sleeps at his boyfriends house the night before, hahaha! Usually complaining about aches and pains as they "partied too much..." but I know better!

Greg is actually running 16/45.

Erick, I'll throw some cash your way if you stop up. I'm still on the minimal diet for lunch but some kind of dinner would be awesome before heading home.

Yeah, I think weather would be the least of your concerns, it hasn't rained here for like three weeks. I live about 35mins south of VIR. Are you guys going to be there this weekend? If so, I might shoot up there tomorrow or Sun.
