2 main problems with our 650 and a true 6 spd ..

1 .our 5th gear is a 1 to 1 ratio and is almost usless already on hills when loaded up
2. a 6 speed would be a true overdrive and we already dont have enough power for it to be useful at legal speeds

unless you wanted a closer ratio and top gear still being 1 to 1 it would help keep you in that sweet spot pulling hills and corners ..
I agree here...

A 6th gear wouldn't do much. I put a bigger sprocket on and got a little more outta her, but at the end of the day its not a speed bike. Its a dual sport...
