You’ve got the good looking fun machine,
Howdy Ron,

My bike is NOT the Adventure model its a regular R1150GS. I had the 3.00:1.00 final drive in my bike BEFORE I had the hack installed, in "my" opinion the regular GS even with the 3.00:1.00 final drive is not geared low enough if you want your clutch to last, you want good all around drive-ability, and if you want good quick passing power.

I have NO experience with a bike or rig that has the Adventure gearing so I am not qualified to give a competent answer to which final drive ratio would work best with that gear combination.
