Went three teeth bigger on the back sprocket Sat, rode for about ninty miles today what a difference its made, more managable at low speeds and in traffic Ill also swear it handles better, could be my imagination, and pulls off the line way better with my fat arse on it (about sixteen stone):D:D

Lots of threads on here about gearing, but yeh 3 on the back is is equivalent to one off the front. Top speed will be slightly down, mine tops out at about 159.

So that means you're running a 40T rear? I've got the KTM hardpart 40T on order, should be here tomorrow. Can't wait to have a lower gearing for slow traffic (and for wheelies)

The handling thing might be due to the slightly shorter wheelbase you've got now?
