Might be a silly question but looking at the gear calculators the Stock/44T appears to be nearly the same as the 15/42 - why the 15/42 over the Stock/44 arrangement?
Best Mod I’ve given My Versys, i always ride on highways & cant believe how much calmer the bike rides, much less vibration, & just a liiiittle loss in torque, but much comfier highway cruising, still super fun on the twisties!This should come standard on the bike.
Much better gearing all around, especially on the highway.
While it's not perfect - 6th gear should, IMHO, be an overdrive or they should have added a 7th - it's nearly so.
Best mod I've made so far.
