I used to do alot of 4wheeling. In that hobby there is a huge cottage industry that sells customers steeper gearing for their Xfer cases. That way you can have your cake and eat it too. Much lower gearing when "wheeling" and the ability to cruise at reasonable hwy speeds. Apparently the Japanese can't get their heads outta their rump and offer a dualsport with a decent wide ratio tranny. Close ratio for the first four or so gears for trail performance and a tall OD top gear for the hwy ala Husky 610. So question is, does anyone offer a set of drop in taller gears for the XR650L?
