As above.. Where does the speedometer and odometer measure from on the MC22? Will changing my sprockets affect the reading? I'm planning to go down on the front and/or up on the rear, pending what sprockets are available at the shop in the brand I want.

Also, this gearing will allow the bike to get moving more easily, so I'm guessing the bike will be more efficient on petrol?.. Or will the bike have to work harder to maintain speed (60-90km/h) and use more petrol?...

Cheers :D

from the front sprocket

yes speedo will be affected

yes will be easier to ride

yes may use more fuel, depending on how you ride it

hmm okay any way to rectify the speedo change if I change the gearing?

I don't ride aggressively or speed. In 1st and 2nd I shift at about 10-12k when speeding up so I don't rev the shit out of it all the time or anything. I'll strap a GPS to my bike and see if there are any inconsistancies with the speedo. Then I'll go from there. But most likely I won't bother changing the gearing.

I'm currently using standard gearing so my speedo and odometer should be pretty accurate. I'm going up 2 teeth on the rear sprocket so how will that affect my speedo and odometer?
