Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

Basically, I'm just commuting to work and filling up at the gas pump.

I've been taking it easy on the drivetrain by not doing powershifts. What I also do is slack the gas, pedal the bike while shifting gears, then back on the throttle. No problems throwing the chain either.

My 32t first gear is not low enough to handle gridlock traffic on steep hills. An 11- 34t cassette will be reinstalled onto the rear wheel. Also pending is an 80-tooth chainring sprocket, which should also accept the SBP White Industries HD freewheel. My 30t bike chainring sprocket is drilled for four-bolt or five-bolt pattern, so everything will bolt on, no machining.

First gear will be 41.21:1, which should solve my ramp and hillclimbing issues. Eighth gear will also change from 12:1 to 13.33:1. This is still high enough for highway speeds, so that's good.
