Ok 43t installed. Went for a ride. Happy happy happy. I was sure it was going to be harder to start from a dead stop but actually i think it is easier. It's true that it is mellower. Less compression braking? Not sure yet. Do note that i only did a 15-20 min. ride. The thing now is that before replacing the sprocket, my speedo showed 97km/h. when going 100km/h. on GPS. Now my speedo shows 103-104km/h. when going 100km/h on GPS. I will have to check my speed often to make sure not to get a speeding ticket since i lost that "buffer". I will set both my speedo and GPS to mph as soon as i can to see what it does. I will be going to the U.S. soon. Want to make sure it shows 40 on 4th, 50 on 5th....
I guess the 44t really gets the speedo spot on, but i don't see the need to put one. Just go to the 43t. It does not seem to kill the performance like a +1t on front did on my Raptor 700 atv, and it should improve the fuel consumption better.
