I find that difficult to believe...I did a less taller gearing change on a bike with more power & torque and never saw such gains, in fact it hindered top speed.Also, my friend has a 250 V-Star. He changed the sprockets from 16-45 to 17-40 and it gave him an extra 15 mph
I probably should have worded that better. By less taller I meant not as extreme as what was posted but still taller than stock.Less taller means lower gears,
Which it doesn't. Not at 14lb/ft anyways.A higher gear change like the little 250 Yamaha mentioned COULD mean a higher cruising and/ or top speed, IF it had the torque to do so.
Okay that makes more sense, thanks for clearing it up.said that he didn't like how it felt at 55 mph...that it felt like it was working really hard and he didn't like how high it was revving. So l guess l worded it incorrectly when l said that he couldn't get it past 55 or 60.
