I went to a 48t rear sprocket for some low end grunt but the mileage dropped to 57ish. I put a 14t up front (with the 48t still on back) which should be a ratio somewhere between stock and where I am now and if it doesn't get much better, I'm going back to the stock 42t rear.
with a 48t sprocket if it was 42 stock youre not right to lower the rpm at cruising speed ..

you need a smaller one at the rear . or bigger one in front
