Close Ratio Tranny for road?

Is the 6 speed tranny found in the 400/520/MXC/EXC all the same? Is it suitable for doing 70 mph on the highway? I like that about my WR, but it's a wide ratio. I'm figuring that the extra gear give it what it needs to do a bit higher speed?

See my answer to your previous post. No, the EXC/MXC do not share tranny's. The EXC has the wide ratio. I'm not sure what topend would be from either bike. It'd depend on your gearing, too. Stock on my bike was 14:50 and I went to 13:52. That would take quite a bite out of my topend speed but I really don't care. I want it geared for the woods, not the road.
