wr426 2002 road bike?
Posted September 14, 2007 - 10:03 PM
I have a 02 wr426, great bike. I live in Utah and ride almost exclusivly on single track that goes from 4000 feet to 10,000 feet. i have never had a problem with gearing while on trail.
I purchased a street legal kit so i could go from trail to trail and the ocasinal 6mile ride to work.
I have noticed a few things that bug me. My bike only has 5 gears, and the top end seems to have some real issues at moderate to high RPMs ( it feels like or is acting like the same thing that hapends in any gas operated device when you get a clogged fuel filter, cutting out and not staying smooth), not to mention at those RPMs im barely hitting 50 MPH, my buddy has a DRZ and due to his 6th gear he blows me a way when it comes to cruzing to trails.
I went to rockymountain atv and purchased a few sprokets for testing so that i would have a better top end crusing speed.
I purchesed a 15 for the front and a 48 for the back, Originaly i planned to use just one. But quickly found out that in lowering my rear sproket i have a super loose chain and would have to remove a few links, but instead of doing that, for kicks,, i threw on the front 15 to get the chain tought , and took it for a spin. Wow i can go alot faster, on the street, im almost certin however i will absolutly not like it on the trail. so ill prob go back to the 14/48 .
So anyways, im wondering if anyone with a 02 feels the same way about there topend, and what they have done about it, And has anyone else noticed a chugging feeling when thye are at a high RPM cruising speed?
Sorry for my spelling i know it sucks.
