He's right, you know.

Really, NOTHING has changed. The engine is the same as it has been since 1987. The gearing is the same as it has been since, well, '96 or so and the final ratio is the same as since '87. The gearing charts on Gear Commander are still valid. The gearing information in the Excel spreadsheet that is stickied is still valid.

If you put a 16 on it it will still turn 93.75% as fast as it does with a 15.

If you want a tach, put one on. They are cheap. You don't need one, though. Just do what @Rat says. Do it six times. After the sixth one, say "Ah, shit." That's what we all do.

I swear, it's like youse guys have never drag raced in a Nash Rambler...

The spreadsheet is here and is kinda-sorta KLR specific. Of course, it will work for any bike, but well, KLR is king boofoo.

I start the bike in neutral and go straight to hooligan mode, shifting into first, second, third, fourth, fifth, and reach for sixth. Thus the six shifts. I tell you this just to prove how adept I am at rationalizing my mistakes. I'm the original Tom Slick, Artful Dodger, Kid Twist, the Pathological Liar.
