Seneca Lake is my backyard. Whatcha riding? :ear
Lots of wide, fast gravel in the area. Lots of oil/gas well trucks, too. I know less traveled, tighter stuff in Washington County.

I've always wondered if that would happen on mine. May go back to a 13 on front and see if it picks up some top end. The WRRs just run out of power at those speeds.

Sounds like you're having fun on it. My WRR always seems to get 50-58 mpgs, don't think its ever gotten in the 40s, KTM is right at 50. How hard is the 290 kit on mileage?

That's how mine goes as well. It seems that it will just run forever held wide open though. Click down to 5th when speed starts to decline and back to 6th when max is attained. :lol3
