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.
You are missing the point.

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.

I don't know where I missed the point, that exactly is my point. With a higher final drive ratio you don't need another gear.
