So 17F 43R set up with a stock chain is ideal setup to lower the RPMs on the highway?
Is there anything wrong with a 15F(Stock) & 39R sprocket setup?
No, nothing wrong with 15/39, but it starts to make 6th an overdrive gear.The stock bike should not be able to achieve redline in 6th gear. Making 6th even more of an overdrive starts to make 1st gear need a bit of slippage on uphill starts. I'm happy with either the stock 15/41 or the 15/39 gearing using the NC700 39-tooth sprocket.
I really want to just use the OEM 15-tooth drive sprocket to ensure a good fit on the counter shaft.
