765 RS Sprocket/Gearing change
on: December 10, 2019, 01:49:19 PM
Hello All

I am finding that all of the power is at the top end of the rev range and I hardly get to it. I have read that getting a front sprocket and a rear sprocket (smaller and bigger) will change the gearing; more low down power.

Has anyone done this to their 765 RS? I would be interested to have you opinion.

I know 765 R is more suitable for the road, but I went with the RS because of the improved brakes and suspension.

Thanks

Two up on the rear. It's enough.
Can't say I've had issues with my RS as it will plod along at town speed in 3rd like that.
OK yes it's interesting when you do go +6k

just go one up on the rear , but you will probably only find two up rear sprockets available I did look in to this myself a while back but ordered the wrong sprocket and chain was a solid rivet type that local bike shop was wary about so left as standard, I did try various front and rear sizes on my last triple 675 and found one up on rear best , in the new year might have another go at my rear sprocket.

I may be wrong about the Street Triple but won't changing the gearing affect the Speedo's reading?

At least that is definitely the case on my RGV VJ23 as people have used that to get around the top speed restriction of 180kmh.

Also, lowering the gearing won't have a huge effect on the revs at any given speed unless you make drastic changes but that could make it too lively  :007:

Surely the easiest way is to stay in the lower gears?  That's pretty much the only way you'll get over 10K revs without going into license losing territory on the roads :149:

Second gear is all you need on the twisties  :008:

ABS bikes tend to read the speed from the ABS sensors. So changing the sprockets won’t affect the accuracy of the speedo.

The only downside to holding a lower gear is vibration in the midrange.  If you're holding a constant throttle on roads with long straights I often go up a gear and take advantage of the bike's awesome torque.
Funny that you never notice when the going gets twistier lol   :062:

Changing sprockets also changes how the suspension reacts under load so it's not all straight forward. Plus if you find the power is all at the top end well that has nothing to do with the gearing, it's just you're not thrashing it.
