1989 XR 600r Dual sport gearing

Recommended Posts

I'm currently turning my 1989 XR 660r into a dual sport. I am looking for any recommendations for gearing, I will mostly be riding trails and dirt roads but I also want to make sure I can cruise at 50 or 60mph to get to my destination. thank you in advance for your advice!

Find whatever rear you like and buy a 14t cs gear and a 15t cs gear and switch em at the trail.
Like a 47t in back.
Bikes can get up to 60. How long are you going to keep it there? You rev high at 60? Youd be surprised in the ease and result from swapping 14 to 15 or vice versa
