16tooth sprocket ='s :)

Well I just changed out my sprockets and chain. Went to a 16 tooth in the front. Did a super quick test spin and I'm 100% thankful I upgraded that sprocket. Woot Woot!

Now I just need to figure out what I did to my rear brake that has caused it to be a complete slush. ugh.

I did the same many miles ago. Dropped my rpm by 500 on the interstate, and still let's me ride off road. I spent a lot more time on the highway though. As far as your rear brake goes, how many miles on the brakes/fluid? It may be time for a brake tune up.

I put a 16 on mine and all it did was lug the motor at higher speeds and worsen the gas mileage. It made it more sluggish taking off. I'm a big guy so yours may be different.
