as we found out in the wheelie thread, not all EX500s have the same stock gearing (for whatever reason). the front is always 16T, but the rear varies from 41 to 43.FOG said:Yaknow It don't mean diddlly to me, but in the intrest of accuracy. Hey that's my job.
Gearing is simple math (even you can do it). For the 2nd gen bikes.
Stock Gearing : 16 /41 = 2.5625
one down : 15/41 = 2.7333
3 up in back : 16/44 = 2.7500
It should be evident that Items 2 and 3 are not equal
If you need help doing this for the gen 1 bikes call Shorty 4444 he's unemployed and need the work.
