44? so your bike is going to be even slower? according to gearing commander your top speed will be less than 80... my kx goes faster than that!!

Out and about... Lovin the gear change. It dropped off about 5 mph on my cruising speed but worth it. Top speed seems to be the same though

and did you end up with 114 links? i went back to the calculator and it actually looks like 112 would be a better setup for all of your possible gearing combinations.

who knows I had to take one extra one off so I think it may be a 114? I need to count how many I took off...the Stock chain was a 112...I counted 52 outside links...Either way the smaller sprocket is about in the middle of the adjustement so the 47 should be towards the front...Ran up and back I-10 going to visit my mom so its working fine....didnt drop to much off the top end for freeway riding

good, the KX still isn't idling right and I don't feel like being the guy that holds everyone up again.

Maybe if i can get a break from working on the BMW I can throw the new jets in.

Me and Kristen are probably taking the street bikes out sunday afternoon if you want to do some asphalt.

Also, is anything going on Tuesday? I need to take vacation if there is a ride going on, I cant miss two weeks in a row of supermoto riding.
