Has anyone retrofitted higher gears to make the bike more crawler friendly? I'm cool with a top speed of 55mph but feel the stock first gear is a tad high for steep loose dirt and I'd rather not burn up a clutch.
I have from what I can tell stock gears on a 2001 Patrol 650. I lifted the rear tire and the driveshaft turns just shy of 5 spins for one spin of the wheel, I'm pretty sure it's the stock 4.62 final drive and my shifting pattern seems to match the stock range. She'll go 65mph no problem, I don't need it to go that fast.
I'm ok with the current gear spacing but wouldn't mind a higher gear in the final drive to make the bike a little slower and better for climbing offroad.
Has anyone swapped gears to either put higher gears in the tranny or a higher final drive? If so, where did you get the parts?
I tried searching for forum but seems people want to go the other direction and try to lower the gear ratio for highway and I want to go the opposite direction.
