you need a smaller one at the rear . or bigger one in front
If my sole purpose was to "lower the rpm at cruising speed", then you are correct. That was not my goal at all. The bike in stock form is geared notoriously tall-so tall in fact that 6th gear feels pretty much useless. I'm just trying to find a good balance in the gearing. The 14t up front and 48t out back are working great! I'm getting right at 70mpg and it wheelies a little easier(than stock) and low speed turns are better.
