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.
its ok , I never drive this bike .
mine is a klr 250 1997 with 6 gear and when there is a hill at 100 kmh , i need to put it in 5th gear to keep my speed at 100 kmh

these engine are perfect for city driving , mine is very pleasant to drive but it seem to rev too much high at 100 kmh ...

at 90 kmh , my rpm is 6000 .... Pretty high so i think i will buy a drz 400 next summer . more tork , more hp , lower rpm and more fun!
