Anyone want *MORE* teeth on their rear sprocket?
I hear a lot about people going down to 44 or 43T rear sprockets for increased top speeds, lower RPM at higher speeds, more use of each gear etc. But I think I'd want it to be the opposite - I want more POWER on each gear. I'd like the option to raise the front wheel by twisting the throttle in basically ANY gear if I wanted to - just not just in the 1st gear. Can you get rear sprockets with even more teeth than the stock 46?
Am I nuts? Anyone else feel this way? I love the stock torque in first gear. Am I riding the V at too high RPMs for it's own good? (Usually between 6k-9K). I rarely ride at really high top speeds because of the insane traffic around where I live (WA), so if anything I'd like more torque in each gear than anything so I can zip between lanes and really accelerate an whatever gear I'm in.
Any insights/ideas/comments welcome. Thanks!
(Oops - realized this should have been posted in "Modifications - Performance") how does one move it?
