You don’t stop riding because you’re getting old, but you get old when you stop riding.

Pretty sure this isn't right.

I run 15/42 gearing giving me a ratio of 2.8
Your 14/40 gearing will give you a radio of 2.86 (equivalent of 15/43).
If you don't keep your weight over the front wheel/tank you'll find the front will want to come up a good bit. You'll find that at higher speeds that your revs are a decent bit higher, I'd guess you'll have a top speed of 110/105ish as towards the end of the gear it's away from peak power.

Me? 
Wheelie?

Me?
Need a speed of more than 80/90?
Ha ha ha ha ha ha 

Very Happy

Actually, it is a good comment to make.
It might be something to bear in mind when I have got it back to power eh?
Also, interestingly, my weight is always too far forward as it happens.
Need to look into that separately.

Get the bike rolling in 1st gear at about 4k rpm and then crack the throttle open front should come up nicely. If you're riding really aggressively red line the bike in 1st clutchless shift into 2nd and the front will pop up again. Wheelie good fun, can do the same in 3rd but you need to bounce the front slightly Wink

(Obviously this in theory and could be possible in a safe OFF ROAD environment in a responsible manner , and should not be done on the road as it is strictly illegal, ect, ect)
