I run 14/50, which is stock. Tried lower, preferred this. Considered the 5th only, basically an over drive. If I were buying all the OEM parts new, it would have been a strong consideration. But I got a great deal on ebay a year or so ago for the whole WR450F transmission. Want to say $50 or $75, had been looking a long time and knew to jump on that price.

Looking forward to trying it. Really going to spread out 4th and 5th, with 4th being as high as the old 5th.


New X and (OEM YZ)
5th .84 (.95)
4th .95 (1.09)
3rd 1.31 (1.27)
2nd 1.56 (unchanged)
1st 1.93 (unchanged)

The only real question for me is the 3rd gear. Some folks like the lower 3rd gear, others not, I'm going to try it. If I don't like it, not too hard to change back.
I'm looking for 1970 or older Triumph 650 project, cheap and preferably complete. PM me if you have something - will provide it a good home.

If you think me being naked is offensive, dont look!
