Just did this mod today and what a difference it is to ride. The motor used to scream at 80 mph, now it just lopes along. :banghead:

Anyone else tried this combination?

I run 15/45 on my XR650R 1/3 throttle at 80mph and still has a strong pull to 100, just above idle at 50 mph, 50mpg city in light traffic.

Sounds like a good idea for commuting. :banghead: Where did you get the 16 tooth sprocket?
