Gearing and Top Speed

Does anyone change the gearing on their KLR?
Also, what is the top and stable speed of a KLR?

I am about to sell my KTM 950 and am looking into a KLR.

Thx in advance!

stock probably 90 maybe 95 with a 16t? The speedo isnt very accurate and mine has shown 90 but who knows how fast that is.

Why in the world would you get rid of a KTM 950 for a KLR650? I have a nice '06 KLR650 that I'd be willing to trade straight across.

'06 KLR650
'06 DL1000 V-Strom
VTX1300R....Gone
