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

The Shimano 11-34t cassettes purchased on ebay arrived this morning. On the way to the bank, I stopped off at the bike shop. They installed the new gears in five minutes, and I thanked them for working so quickly.

This should give me an excellent romp up the parking lot ramp. There is a steep hill on the way home. With a 32t, low gear is 34.91:1. With 34t first gear, the ratio is 37.01:1. It should make some difference, so that I don't have to ride the shoulder.

With an 80-tooth engine chainring, low gear will be 41.21:1. I'm waiting on King Sales and Service to return my PM on the sprocket.

This is with shift kit and Tanaka engine.
