Hey all,

I have changed my stock sprockets -1F +2R and was wondering how many miles are actually added..

Is there an exact formula i can figure so that i know what is happening??

Thanks in advance.

Get on the freeway, reset your trip meter when you pass the first mile marker you see, then 10 miles later, see what your trip meter says.

That's the most foolproof way.

For the math original F/R sprocket ratio divided by new F/R sprocket ratio, will get you your percentage increase.

Hate to break this to ya, but thinking is a huge part of riding.
Yeah I know.. Its amazing how much your mind is clicking the more throttle you give.. I mean I am mentally tired as well as physical when i get home from a hard day of riding..

It was never like that in the dirt on my quads! ;)

Yea well, if the streets were like the track then it would be more fun...

But we've got cagers, potholes, deer, cops, and other random crap to look out for.

Just the other day, while I was riding my bike back from the weigh station, following an old pick-up truck, I suddenly had to swerve to avoid what appeared to be a bouncing chunk of firewood that fell out of the back of the trunk. As I passed it, I noticed it was not merely a chunk of firewood, but a class iii trailer hitch ball mount! :wtf:

I'm sure if it would have hit you it would still have been your fault some how. I love how no matter what, people get out of their cages and look at us lying on the ground like we're the a$$hole. I'm not one to shy away from when I've done something wrong and I certainly don't blame others for my mistakes. Where were some of these people raised?!?!
