I'm a bit of a gear(ing) freak, and have changed gearing ratios on every street bike I've owned....except for this one.

I've used stock (or 16/41-42) for 3 changes of chain and sprockets.

I don't ride much in first gear, don't enjoy the "hyperreactive" feel of the bike's response in first gear-high rpm riding.

I don't ride at high rpm's until in 2nd/3rd gear, and open road with little traffic ahead.

With stock ratio, if I need to move along the highway at less than 70 mph I can do so in 6th gear, and the 2ndary injectors are closed....maybe saving a bit of fuel...not much!

From a gearing weirdo, "stock ratios work good for me".
