Ahhh.. I had assumed the speed was read off of a sensor from the output shaft, like many other bikes.Keep in mind the sprocket change won't affect the speedometer on the x300. It reads off the rear wheel speed sensor (also functions as abs sensor if you have abs), so your speedo and the traffic speed signs will still be the same relationship as before.
In this case, I wonder why they didn't read the speed off of the front wheel, so sprocket changes would be more flexible.
I'm starting to push it up the rev range a bit and not adhering 100% to the manual.Hope you enjoy the new gearing more once you start revving higher ! These 300s start getting fun about 8k rpms 😉
It def. feels more alive above 4500 RPM.
