44t rear sprocket & Scorpion Trails - a quick review
Just got back from a weekend ride testing my new 44t rear sprocket and new Pirelli Scorpion Trails.
44t sprocket: Made a huge difference on the ride. If i'm explaining properly, the gears seems to be much taller, meaning less shifting and more throttle pulling for each gear. I like the difference it made and I can really hear my engine growl more in each gear. I highly recommend, though it did make a difference in my odometer. My riding mate and I had different mileage at the end of each day, I had less miles i.e. he had 600 miles on the odometer and I would have 580. Is this normal?
Scorpion Trails: The Scorpions replaced the Dunlop OEMs and again made a big difference. I didn't get a chance to ride on any gravel or dirt roads over the weekend, but did over 700 miles on a combination of highways, twisties and wet rainy roads. Not one time, did i feel my tires "swimming" or "slipping" on the road.
Anyway, if anyone out there is thinking of either changes, I am very happy with mine. Definitely confident inspiring and almost learning to feel my bike again in a good way...
