My kits all came with 41T sprockets and when I switched to a 36T tooth I seen my comfortable cruise speed increase somewhere about 5-7 MPH, all my engines have minor mods like shaved the heads down, cleaned up the intake and exhaust ports, a free flowing exhaust and a well tuned rejetted carb. I weight 210lbs and all my bike cruise fairly smooth at 30-32mph and top out 38-42 MPH depending on wich bike I'm on because I have a 36T on one a 34T Kings sprocket on one and a BGF 32T on another, they all do well for me but vibes get a little rough on all of them at over 32 MPH, just my engines though, yours may be much smoother than mine and you may see 34 or 35 mph comfortably if it all set up right.

I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
