i raced a mx on the wr (finally got it back) and was able to do the whole track in 2nd and third third gear. i finished as well and rode better than on the rm250 i had been riding, but i could leave that bike in 2nd the whole lap and forget about shifting.

the point i'm getting at is the jump between 2nd and third is a little tall. if it had a taller 2nd or a lower 3rd, this would be a one-gear bike for mx, too.

not complaining, just stating an observation. maybe when i need new chain and sprockets i'll go a tooth or two bigger in the back. i can deal with it though and wouldn't trade my thumper for anyting. it feels good to be back on the yamathumper again.

peace out, pin it and grin :) !!!!
