Oh no

I'm so sorry; your mind works like mine. I don't understand stocks but circumferences and compression ratios, no problem.

Reiterating all

I have a 2007 1250s (naked). Great mpg, loads of torque, seriously underworked engine, faster than you think, not for two up, sloppy in tight turns, only OK looks. Overall a great buy.

Good advice. I'll do that. Now that you mention it I read somewhere, a few years back, that a little slop can have major effect on shifts. I'll check it out and get back.

One more question

Does anyone know if there is a chart showing the speed in all gears on this bike? 1st gear must be around 60mph? 2nd around 85?
Is there a chart out there?
