Default SM ing With MY 36t Rear Sprocket.

Just a short note re. the first 100 miles I put on my 450FSE with the DRZ sm rear wheel and a 36t sprocket. So far, I have not received any feedback re. the use of a 14t front on the FSE other than the one I posted previously. When I get a chance, I'll get one and give it a try.

Right now, I'd like to comment on my 100 mile experience with the 36 rear and 13 front.
The tire was a 150-50-17 Conti-Force. My first impression was that it wasn't very much different than my DRZ sm with the stock 41 rear and the optional 16 front. My riding was not on a track but on some very winding hilly county roads.

1 st gear 8 mph at idle.. winds out to 35
5 th gear cruises nicely at 50 mph winds out to 85 easily.
6th gear cruises very nicely at 75 mph. Could cruise at 80 if I wanted to.

My overall impression, was the bike was much more usable and faster in the 40 to 75 mph range because I found myself using 2nd and 3rd. Gears I hadn't been used to using with the previous gearing set up.

My friend Johnny has a 05 450FSE he converted to an SM. He is
running a 13/42 combination. Seems to work well for him.
He ordered the stock GG wheels and gearing from the old
importer in Florida a year or two ago. He is still running the
stock front caliper and rotor. I believe, like tony, he also had
a hard time finding the parts here in the US.
Thanks for the update.
