Do you really need a 690? Needs got nothing to do with it.

I'm Sorry, mine is not a polemical phrase, it's only to understand why the power of this engine is not enough for someone.
for my lack of capacity is already too much

and even in the case you want more power there is tuneecu+dyno run...

i repeat, no desire to be controversial, only to understand :)

I don't need any more power now.

I'm not so much a quantity guy as I'm a quality guy. The power characteristics feel much better. 10 Maps pretty much guarantee that you'll find one that suits your ability, personality and mood.

I detested the requirement to continuously do adaptive resets when it would start flaming out because the pressure dropped.

The fact that the Throttle ECI is dumped, means that your wrist directly affects your rate of power change.

As for Tune ECU - Well, if it makes you happy not to spend money on your bike, that's cool with me.

So 15/48 is about .5% higher than 14/45, which won't really be noticeable on a bike. Going down 1 tooth on the CS and staying with the stock rear will lower it 6.66% from stock, which is noticeable.

Now use your multiplication and division skills to figure out the rest from here, or let the Gearing Commander website do it for you...
Lukas,

When I joined AR you told me there would be no math!

I am not the one asking the question I was only trying to help by giving a reference to a site that has lots of computations given various variables along with my own experience with 14/45. I could care less about what the precise ratio is, I use a seat of the pants method which serves me well.

FWIW, I was asleep in "Gradeschool Math" but is seems that you were not.

BTW, I was commenting on the poster's possible change from 14/45 to 14/48, not 14/45 15/48 as you discussed above.

Yes/No. I want low-end snap to lift the front over obstacles. I actually want a softer hit most of the time so that the power's more manageable. Actually I can sum it up nicely: I want the power of a Husaberg 450 in a bike that's tagged that I can go long distances on

so you don't need more power, but a different power, this makes sense to me
