The old 84 xr500r has been kicking around in the garage for a while. She doesn't get any love lately because the yz250 is so much better in the woods. Decided today that I would get a plate for the old girl to make her much more useful. No questions at the DMV.....it was much easier than I thought. Now for the first question: Gearing?? Presently I have a 14-51 combo as I raced her in local hare scrambles and liked the extra thump down low. I assume that this combo won't work too well on the road. I do have a nice unused 46 tooth that I could put on the rear. Will this keep me up to speed on the road?? or should I go to a 15 on the front along with the 46 on the rear. I anticipate about 80% off road use but it will be mostly open stuff not single track. As far as the road I'm not looking to be blasting at 80mph, I anticipate just short local trips. I would think it will need to run 65 to 70 mph at most and then for short periods only. I know I'll have many more questions later but I figured I'd start here. Thanks in advance for your replys.
