So I didn't realize that the 05' yzf's had only 4 gears, and the new 06' yzf's are going back to 5, along with the 2-smokes having 6 gears in 06'. I noticed this when I was at the dealer yesterday looking around. Just wondering how people like the lack of the 5th gear on there bikes cause sometimes I almost want a 6th in mine. So for the 4 gear people, do you ever "run out of gears" or dislike the gear ratios since they are farther spread? Also I use to have a 125 smoker and it felt like i was always shifting and it was just a 5 speed. Now from what i read the 06' 250/125 smokers are gonna have 6, which to me is fine except that they are kinda close ratios so your gonna shift even more. Seems like gear selection going into a corner is gonna be all that much more important. let me know what your thinking.
