Gday all 🙂 I'm getting my 2000 RC in two weeks which is ok as Wisconsin has a snow pack from here to Alaska. I rode a RC once in 2002 so my memories of riding it are of squeezing fear.
The riding I mostly do now is canyon twistys at 80 with the odd straight squirts to mabie a ton.
I'm planning on getting a Slipper Clutch for it.
What's a good one guys?
I really want to reduce the gearing though as doing warp speed dosen't grab me anymore.
But leaving a tight corner at 60 with a good kick in the pants does. Will the gearing 15/43 make for too high a rev zone (vibrations, gas milage)
The engine braking is also massively higher with a ham fisted clutch release I've read.
Will this gear combination really break the rear end very loose with unclean down shifts?
I don't find it necessary on the street , it did take a short time to get used to it after the slipper clutch in my TL1000R. That gearing may be a little short , I'd hate to make first gear almost useless. Have you seen ''Gearing Commander'' ?
