49/16 sprockets for the win

I just put on the 49/16 set with a new chain from the vendor section on F650.com.
The 49 in the rear made a huge difference and I think it's how the bike should have been geared from the factory.
MUCH better low speed without lugging and I actually think it smoothed out the bike on the top end at high way speeds.
Seems like the higher RPMS vibrate less or maybe just a different frequency.

I wish I had done this years ago.

SupersproX Stealth sprocket with a Gold Xring DID chain.

I have a SupersproX on my KTM 950 and have had great luck with it. Some 10000 miles with zero issues and little wear.

I also have used SupersproX sprockets on my Sons MotoX race bike and REALLY liked the peformance of their product.

Nice pictures and bike! Love your country too. One day I will ride a moto through it. Atleast I have gotten to bicycle there quite often. Where abouts are the pictures taken?

The pics have been taken in the mountains close to the eastern end of the Geneva Lake. Nice road.

After the first two pics I left tarmac, crossed the river (about 2 inches water, nothing to worry about) and rode on the other side of the valley. A little too slippery and muddy (it was raining the all night) for the Tourance though. They are almost new but the next will be a pair of Heidenau K60 for improved traction off-road.

Sadly I don't have any pictures of the second half of the road as I forgot to take the spare battery for the camera...

Great pics and nice bike. I am fortunate and get to travel to your country every year for a mountain bike race in Nove Mesto Na Morave. Seems like it would be a great country to do some touring around in. Bicycle riding is great and wonderful people too.

Very nice. We have been to many mountain bike races in CH. The World Championships were in Champery last year. Love that area.
