Thanks. Almost sounds like the 15/42 would be a good one for me.Nick D said:I'm running 15/42. It is NOT a wheelie machine. I can clutch it up fairly easy, but just cranking on the throttle isn't going to bring up the tire (without shifting weight and such). During a hard 1-2 shift it'll carry the tire a little, but not more than a few inches for a few feet down the road. That's my $0.02, hopefully someone can throw in a few words about a 14/42 or a 15/44 (close to the same gearing, 3.0:1 and 2.93:1 respectively).
No idea on top speed, I've never really wound it out. I've done plenty of cruising upwards of 70mph, with stints of passing at 85 or 90mph (indicated speed, not accounting for speedo error) and never really felt like I was running out of steam.Titanium said:Thanks.

Any Idea where the bike tops out at?
Sounds more like a case of bad form, to me. I'm not a wheelie pro, but what little I've played with I'd think that looping an EX would take a little effort or a bad judgment in braking (or not) and weight placement.Titanium said:I have heard others say they looped a 500 really easily, I assume it has something to do with the weight and the wheel base. If that is the case, then I will have to be careful and not try it.
