Stock gearing for the RC is 16/40 (really tall).* The front sprocket is a JT sprocket, the rear is by a relatively new company called PBI.* When going to a 520 conversion, AFAM is one of the only companies that stock a 41 rear for the RC.* And they want like $70 for a rear sprocket.* So, I went w/ the $40 PBI.

no fairing stay???* then how does your speedo and front stuff hang on to the bike if you're not using a fairing stay?* Maybe im gettin confused but last time I check I thought the fairing stay was that bracket that held the front en together...* *:dontknow:


But daaaamn so you went up like 4 teeth in the rear!! What's with everyone gearing up the 1000s! Isn't it enough torque already? Ive been riding with mine geared down in the rear. If it was a 600 or even a 750 I would understand... but you have a monster of a bike!

I went down 1 in front and up 1 in the rear on the sprockets.* The factory gearing on an RC is way too tall.

Also as far as the fairing stay goes, the RC fairing stay is old-school style.* It connects where the two bolts that hold the front of the tank are and just goes up to hold where the mirrors go.* So, if you have no mirrors, it doesn't do much.* Also, the gauge cluster attaches to the top of the RAM air intake snorkel. You can see that in this pic:

Re: Anyone going to Cresson on Monday, Ath 8th???

ic now.. its all clear .

and as for the gears... yeah. going down one in the front is like going up 3 in the rear. It has a VERY similar equivalence... Thats y I said its like going up 4 in the rear. cool

Re: Anyone going to Cresson on Monday, Ath 8th???

Well.* It could have been better.* After the first session it rained alittle and the track stayed wet till after noon.* Me, on my just finished bike, realized that the previous owner fried the clutch.* I hit the first straight and hit the throttle and my bike revved up and I accelerated about like I can on my bicycle.* :BangHead::BangHead::BangHead::BangHead::BangHead: :BangHead:*
Actually, this was a blessing in disguise.* A group of us are heading to VIR at the end of the month and I'm glad I found out the problem before I was trackside in Virginia.* right:

But, the track dried up and Brad got in some good sessions.* I got to be his pit .*

Actually, one of the best things to happen was we got there the night before and pitted next to Marcus McBain (Racing Performance Services) and got to talk suspension w/ him for a couple of hours.* Then he pushed on Brad's 600RR and told Brad that his front forks weren't working right.* After Brad told him that he had Race Tech valves and springs installed by someone else* :eh:* He told Brad that for $150 he would re-do his forks so that they worked right and he would give back his Race Tech gold valves to him so he could get back about $80 by selling them on eBay.* ** That's pretty fuggin cool if you ask me.* So at 10:45 pm, Brad and I dropped his forks out and gave them to Marcus and in less than 5 minutes (not exagerating at all) he had Brad's forks completely taken apart into every conceivable piece.* * Then he discovered that the Race Tech valves were installed wrong.* So Marcus fixed him up and his forks are workin sweet.* Then he checked on Brad several times throughout the day to see how it was performing.* right:

Unless you're talking abut my clutch issues w/ my RC. In that case, I chose to look at it as a blessing that it happened in time before I go to VIR...

Re: Anyone going to Cresson on Monday, Ath 8th???

well good to hear yall came back in one piece. I was thinkin about weather cuz it poured over here.

As for Marcus he too rebuilt my forks and they work greeeat right:. I got some Traxxion Dynamic internals. He's a pretty cool guy once you get to know him and he will tell u all there is about suspension. While at track he tunes up my suspension for free if I just tell him whats wrong and what im feelin on the bike. So I guess gettin them built by him just gives me that "warranty" that if somethin is happening I can come to him at the track and he can correct it.
