We all know it's a great bike, eh?
I wouldn't mind trying one of those sprockets for all-road run. I'll bet it would cruise 85-95 easier. At 90 I think it's turnining about seven grand with the stock gearing. 6500 is a better cruising rpm. I find myself settling there on long road runs which is about 85. If you're going to be at or under limits then I still think the stock ratio is better.

+1. Mine went alright on the slab. The only issue I can see with the 43 is when you finally make to the twisties, the V is only a 650 so there is not a lot of power there, but I guess that is what a gear shifter is for. I do know it would be a lot nicer not to turning so high of RPM on the flat and level.

After riding every type of bike out there what does he buy as his own personal bike? hmmm..
Not only did he buy a Versys, but he hangs out at this forum!

Oh wait. Why am I talking about myself in the third person like an idiot?

Hah, had no idea you were on here. I'm just a Versys wannabe owner just now and I value opinions like yours.
