1) Can the 650R be made to have a closer ratio transmission? I also have a KTM 520 M/XC and love the close ratio in the first 4 gears. I am always in the right gear. I would like my XR to have the same type of transmission

2) Does anyone make black plastic for the 650R?

Thanks in advance!

the only plastic you can get in black is the front fender and the tank, for the rest, you need a can of spray paint. There are alot of pig riders that want black plastics, you'd think one of the plastic companies would step up to the table.

Have you tried changing the gearing with the drive or driven sprocket(or both) yet?
