Just Ride and Steve GS have both gone to 40T rear sprocket on their DR200s. Just Ride is a self-proclaimed 200 lbs, while Steve GS is 140 lbs. Just Ride sees quite a performance improvement, while Steve GS is not so sure, it seems. Just ride expects an improvement in gas mileage, but Steve GS sees a 20% drop.
I, too, had thought to go to a 42T or 40T, maybe even the easily found 39T for the rear. Now I'm thoroughly befuddled. I hope Tweeker43 can get his 39T installed soon and clear things up a bit.
