If your bike will pull 15/42 gearing then the answer is no, 15/45 is not too tall with the NX 5th gear. I met a guy that had an '06, 100% stock XR-L with 15/42 gearing, he loved it, its only duty was as a commuter during rush hour traffic. He also claimed it consistently got 50 mpg.

If you want the first and second gearing to be the same as running 14/48 sprockets then adding the 600R first gear would be a step in the wrong direction. The 600R first gear is not as low as the XR-L first gear. 2.38 versus 2.66 for the XR-L.

Have you considered buying one of Cigar Mikes center stands and changing the front sprocket at the trail head? Having a center stand has put my lift out of business.

Glad you brought that up. I was assuming like the NX650 2nd gear that one tooth less would be the right move.

I haven't considered a center stand as I've been trying to reduce the over weight of the bike anyway but it is an option to think about.

Ok I have put my 14T sprocket this morning and went out for a spin and I think its perfect now but will test further this weekend. With 14T/49T at 100km/hr - 62mph the engine RPM is now about 4500RPM. The engine breathes much better. Low end is far better. Top end is fine at highway speeds. I would say for those wanting a beast in the woods or if your a heavy set guy like myself (260lbs.) this would be perfect gearing. If your a lighter rider or riding faster than let's say 65mph on a regular basis than maybe the 15T/49T would be better suited for you, otherwise I think the 14T/49T is by far the best gearing for all purpose driving.

No problem!

So the shop I bought mine from says he can get more! It is a special order and took me three weeks or so to get. Let me know and I can post his email if you'd like.

The Shop!

Ok so the web site is www.LewisportUSA.com . My price was $204.71 plus local sales tax making the total $221.60. Of couse there would be extra shipping I'm guessing to get it to you. It's not the speediest way but he can get them and anything else euro you may need. Have fun......

interesting the SLR650 came with 14/43 sprockets, basically equal to 15/46.

Which in my opinion is a step in the right direction. I'm loving my 14T/49T setup more and more.

I heard back from my friend in Japan and she may have the 5th gear for me. She'll be back in the states in 3 weeks and she'll give it to me then. I guess her contact got the gear right before everything got wiped out.

Do you have an estimate on how much the gear costs in Japan? That info would tell us if it's worth pursuing getting this gear from somewhere beside Europe.
