I heard you don't have trees in australia just bushes and pigmies

and I was wrong, my CS is a 14 and I have the stock rear, forget what it is right now, but I am gonna still add two more teeth in back next sprocket chain change out. Yes you can have my 5 & 6th gear anytime as I don't go over 45 MPH here in the Sierra Nevada forests.

Respect...you must have arms like a gorilla to hang on at that speed. Mine has a 15/42 and it was doing around 7k rpm at around 80mph. I'm thinking of going to 16/38 to keep the revs down for decent speed and acceleration.

i found the stock 16/40 gearing quite good in the sand before I got a real back tyre. the 650 has the tourque to pull a higher gear for longer less work awesome!

Its probably just me bouncing all over the place with arms legs and feet comming off everywhere like a drunk tellystubby but I got nuetral too many times changing over from 1st to 2cnd and vice versa, even changing down into 2cnd got nuetral a few times so I geared it down to make 3rd the lowest gear used regulary.

may be of use to someone not sure how many other telystubbies ride

Regards

the 16 38 is gonna be tough on the 1st gear leave,.
