is this normal?
« on: September 19, 2006, 10:13:50 PM »
Quick question.. When I'm driving on the highway at about 75 MPH in 6th gear, the RPM's are around 7k. is this normal or is this higher than what it should be? I'm not sure if the bike has stock gearing or not... I bought it used from a dealership

Yes that is perfectly normal! Unless you are riding a Harley!?

Will a Harley do 75mph?  ???  I guess if it was dropped off a cliff it might.  :P

Count the teeth on the sprockets.

Front should be 16, rear should be 43.

If it's other than that, the gearing has been changed...

Isn't the number stamped on the sprocket? Counting the teeth sounds tedious  ???

SHHH!  I figured he'd get to about 38 or so when he saw the # stamped on it...

RPM/MPH for mine is about 10 off, so if I'm at 6500 RPMs I'm at 75 MPH in 6th gear.

Road America  is the only place that 6th gear gets to come out and play on my bike...
