I have a 15 tooth front and a 45 tooth rear. Bike runs real nice at 45-55. I am trying to increase this sweetspot to 60-65. I commute with this ride and do mostly dirt roads and fire trails. Called for larger OEM front sprocket(cheapest and easiest, not made or smaller OEM rear sprocket. Who sells them? After market?
Thanx

Stock gearing, I always felt the XRL was geared right for the sweet spot you're looking for.

If redline in top gear will net you 100 (it does, just about) then 65mph will be 65% of redline, geared much taller and it seems you'd be lugging it.

Huffa2 has a geared-higher-than-stocker, though, and it seems to work out.
