Well after waiting all weekend I finally got to bring my bike home. Was a nice 60 mile first ride on it as well. Wow power band is way different from the inline 4s I have been riding and a lot more vibration.
While looking everything over I found a speed healer, so I look at the rear sprocket and it is a 42. A quick search showed me stock is 40. Do you think they would have changed front as well or just went up 2 in rear to make it lower geared?
P.S
Posted some pictures in the introduction area on this forum, will be posting more soon.

It's hard to tell because everyone have their preference in front and rear sprockets. But if I was hesitant and wanted to see if I like lower gearing, I guess going +2 or +3 would be the way to go without touching the front.

Can you tell if it's a 520 or 530 chain? If it's a 520 then it's more likely that they changed the gear ratio on the front also. 15/42 is not uncommon.

I'am not sure how to tell what chain it is so I took pictures of the sprocket and chain, oh yes bike porn :D
