I would love to try yours with stock gearing for a more direct comparison. But that being said, and don't take this personally or anything, but I was disappointed in the lack of difference. Like you said, I didn't ride it much, and like I said, we're running very different gearing, but the fact is, I cracked the throttle several times hoping to loft the front end, but the reality was the same as my bike, I needed to bounce it and/or put some effort into it. You're gearing and tires were much better for off road than mine, but (useable) power wise they are still damn close. Perhaps peak power (like a drag race) you'll walk away from me, but I don't use peak power out on the trails.
