Still using original. Smaller rear will give lower rims at cruising speed, but I see no need for that personally.

Remember, if you change gearing ratio the speedometer/odometer will be incorrect. This can be remedied with an aftermarket speedo adjuster (yellow box or speedo healer).

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

thanks.. I've regeared previous bikes and have done a speedo healer install on one of them. I'm currently leaning towards going back to the factory 43.

im just looking for personal opinions... so that's 2 people now for 43... I'll update the board.

Personal preference. Unless you think the gearing feels too tall with the 41 that is on it, I wouldn't change just to put it back to stock. Personally I thought the stock gearing was too short, so I'm running a 40. Still has plenty of power/torque everywhere, makes the roll on acceleration a bit smoother in low gears (tight roads), and brings the cruise rpm on the freeway down to a reasonable range. I didn't bother changing the speedometer correction; the indicated speed is still within a few mph of actual, which is close enough for me to not care.

I changed to 41 t after I spoke with Carl. (Cag).
Makes the R much nicer on the throttle.

I prefer the stock gearing on the 910R

Make sure you don't overtension that chain and the hub pinch bolts mate.

well I went back to the factory sprocket... I would think the factory chain would clear.... I left a good amount of slack while on the stand... it still had some slack on the ground while sitting on it.... I tightened the two hub bolts to 22.5 foot pounds... that should be 30Nm... can anyone verify that?

thanks for all the help.
