Thanks Richard, I'll keep an open mind re the sprocket then. 2-teeth down on the rear isn't as drastic as I've read some do on here which includes down 2 on the rear and up 1 on the front - blimey!  :033:

And as you found, the more I ride it the less I'm looking for 7th as well, and also I'm getting used to making sure I'm not in too-high a gear when exiting low speed corners - It don't drive smoothly from idle like a four-cylinder does - and the last twin I owned was an RD350LC in 1982.

Bet you wish youd kept that RD!

Yes, but some bugger nicked it. It was only 6 months old.

YBH 637X - nobody seen it have they? - Luton area.

  It seems quite a few people do it and then quite a few of them revert to the original

As I posted the other day. One tooth seems to take the edge off what performance it had. I've not done any serious motorway miles to tell if there is a good benefit at high speed cruise but I feel it's changed quite a bit on normal A roads.

Of course these tests are hardly back to back and worse, it's winter so bigger gaps in riding. It's just gut feeling.
Brian.

Would that be one tooth on the front Brian?

Yes. Easy option, no chain problems.
