Gearing Commander: Motorcycle Speed, RPM, Chain & Sprockets Calculator

I've used this site before, and it seems to address all the variables.

Anyone have any experience with it, and how reliable is its data?

If it's accurate, this certainly would seem to be a very valuable tool.

And, I'm still trying to find out what cruising rpm for my 2011 fe570 I should be striving for.

Thanks.

Steve

I used that site as well before changing the gearing on mine.

Based on FS 650 (mine is the 550) in 6th gear at 6900rpm it would make 139.8km/h with my current gearing (14/40) and I'm pretty sure it has done at least +10km/h, although I don't usually ride at that speed.

heres one for offline use courtesy of chaingang sprockets

i found when geared for just over 200, top speed was only 175 and load wasn't the issue so somewhere in the region of 30km/hr was lost to wheelspin (beach )

Thanks everyone! Amazing information!

I will defiantly take it all into consideration.

The thing that worries me most is the local dealer told me that at 10,00ks it'll need a rebuild which I around $1,000 just for parts.

Yup. A honda isn't much cheaper with respect to parts. Availability is my greater concern

If you were racing it to work, or riding twisty roads then it's worth it for the thrill. If your just humping it down the highway then there's probably better options. A KTM 620/625/640/690 would be easier to live with. 30-50,000ks between rebuilds on average for the earlier ones and more for the 690.

Agree with LemoneyF, if your in any sort of stop start traffic, a thermo fan would be a necessity. A temp gauge would be handy, my Trailtech Vapour has one.
I like the idea of Rotella or Delo 400 etc because it's a great heavy duty oil but as a bonus you can buy it in bigger drums.
