Yeah, what the numerically lower ratio does is transfer less torque through the geartrain by making it spin faster. A numerically higher final drive is then required to multiply the torque back up again. That's why Honda's HRC kit for the XR600 included an NX650/XR650L primary drive set with a lower ratio.
