any experience on biggersprocket 45 teeth

Hi how does this bike feel on biggersprocket of 45 Teeth offered by KTM2Ksprocket, will it be of help in low speed rides like in hilly areas & city rides ? i dont mind sacrificing TopEndspeed ,Can the bottom end torque is increased so it can pull easily at lower RPM? With minimum gear changes ? The speed we do maximum is 160kmph only .( But this bike can do 270kmph as of now as per Youtube )

I run 16/45. 70 MPH is 5000 rpm which on my bike is a very sweet spot in the powerband. First gear is still too high if I have to get off and push though I suspect a Rekluse would help that a lot. 4000 miles to the Rally with about 2500 on dirt including TAT, COBDR and Lolo and I averaged 37 MPG.
Overall the bike runs very well with that gearing

I have a 45t rear and both a 16 and 17t counter sprocket. I run the 17 most of the time for street and light off road. That is about the same ratio as a 16/42. It takes me about 20 minutes to switch to the 16 for offroad, love the versatility!

I p/u a used 08 990 S which the po had put 17/47 gearing. Speedo was way off but it sure is fun in the dirt. You just go slower on the road. I will be replacing soon with 16/45. Seems to be what works for others here.

Good luck.

I am running 17/45 on my 990, and it has definately worth it, the throttle is less snatchy, bike in general much nicer to ride, and great fun on the dirt, can get the back wheel to loose traction at the drop of a hat!!
