Default Re: Running full blast

I don't know if it is right, but always worked for me. An old "wrench" told me the rule of thumb was to keep any engine at 3/4s and it would live it's life out as planed. With 44T rear sprocket on a Chinagirl, I find that 19 to 22 MPH seems and feels perfect on flat road. After that, it starts to feel and sound like it is time to change gears. (I have to try a SBP shift kit!)

I have yet to try a 40T as Dax suggested but am absolutely going to soon.

As has been said, it is how it feels to each and some plane old good luck with longevity.

Any one have any high mileage 4 strokers?
worst apocalypse ever
