15T/44T sprocket setup for 919

Anyone running this set-up on their 919?

It's either this or 43T rear (15T is already on)

cheers

F/F

half of us here have tried the 15/43... it was interesting.. but too buzzy for the 60 mile round trip i have all interstate....

lets see.. in the year i had my 919 i ran the stock 16/43 17/43 and then 15/43...... then i went to 16/44 and then finally 17/44...

the 17/44 was my favorite because i still had accel and could cruise at ~90 without my teeth falling out....

that and the fact that with a 15 front it turns the 919 into a unicycle....

Cheers for that info.

You never tried 15/44? Seems no-one has (maybe i'll try it first!)

We do'nt have massive long freeways here, even my commute has a few good twisties in it, so i'm not fussed about constant speeds. I just want to be set up well for the twisties and I can deal with the odd forced freeway!

I have the 15 / 45 set up and love it. Done the highway trips, all day trips and everything in between. Perhaps I don't notice the buzzing because of the exhaust, but I like to think it just because I'm a man and the fact that Barton's tampon vibrating his inner being is why he didn't like it???

I run the 15/45 as well. It's the perfect setup for around town and quick trips to the grocery store. I go for short freeway runs.. the buzz sucks sometimes... but the low down umph makes it worth it.

Soooooo........no-ones tried 15/44 yet?

All the other combos have heaps of reviews. Nothing on this.

I guess i'll let you all know what I think of it then!

It's because a 44t rear is harder to come by. At least was harder to find one last time I looked. Otherwise more folks would have tried. By all means.. give it a go! I have done 17/43, 16/43 15/43, 16/45 and 15/45 (17/45 is so close to stock it's probably not worth the effort but my friend claims it moved the buzz out of the speed he prefers on the freeway.. Of course he got himself a Connie 14 and is looking to sell the 9er now. I guess that moved the buzz out of all his speeds, since the Kawasaki 1352cc lump is smooth as waxed pu$$y . So whatever, what does he know anyway?

Yes yes yes I have tried it ... It was so much fun I lost the ability to walk for 3 months .. now I run a 16/44 ... best of both worlds for me .. all ways remember this ... if you yank a lot of wheelies one of them will not end well ...

Lol, that's true, but looking at how small NZ is and how big the U.S it's understandable.......

To be honest after spending a few months travelling the U.S i'd love to live there, if it was'nt so damn difficult I probably would!

Are you an ex-pat or just knowledgeable? lol
