I’ve already changed to a 43tooth rear sprocket, but now it sucks with a passenger taking off on a hill or anything of that nature.  I rode my bike 16xr premium for 2 hours with my wife, then a gs for an hour then 2 more hours on the. Xr. I think if 5 and 6 gears were higher then I would be much happier with the stock gearing on my Xr.

Sounds better in us measurements.

Mine has a 42 on the rear and it's not an issue, even two-up. I find it much better at motorway speeds and less revvy in general....outright acceleration is down a tad but she's still got plenty of poke.

When I die, I want to go peacefully in my sleep like my Grandfather....not screaming like the passengers in his car..!

I’ve found that the temperature seems to make a big difference on my bike. The hotter the ambient temp the worse it takes off.
