Recommended Posts

depends on what bike you have, the gear ratios you have and if you are taking away or putting more teeth in

Check the garage.

One down in back... one up in front.

It'll tap out about 83mph as is with the stock gearing. Too slow for the 580 EXC's.

We do one ride a year... a memorial ride... 55 miles or so on gravel/dirt roads down to Jackpot, NV. We end up racing.. so it seems.. the last 10 miles or so... on the long stretches. The XR650's and the EXC's can go well over a hundred... mine... 83mph or so... and the KX's... what? 65mph?
