You are missing the point.And it's what I've been advocating for years. People go on and on about wanting a 6th gear, it's not needed with all the torque an 1800 has. And 1st gear now is so low it's almost useless.
The purpose of wanting a 6th gear was to lower the RPM's
Anyone knows lower RPM's uses less fuel.
I'm tired of riding down the road, trying to up shift into a another gear by engine RPM sound screaming.
Everything I've read so far. says. This new drive is what we have been asking for.
I disagree with you. This bike has needed a 6th gear from day one.
If you enjoy your bike the way it is. This new drive isn't for you.
It IS what I have wanted a for a loooong time.
