Should i get a different sproket, i want higher revs at slower speeds.
So this bike (2018 790Duke) is 99% used for communting to work, in heavy traffic, with a part through a suburbon area with lots of roundabouts (Circles for our South Afrikan readers).
I'm finding it tricky to negotiate very tight turns (typically 90degree) whilst also cancelling the signal and resignalling whilst also feathering the clutch.
I can try not singalling (not good as oncoming traffic thinks i'm going straight)
I can try just going faster (i'm not super comfortable here, we're talking large potholes, school children, wet manhole covers)
what i've been doing is having the throttle all the way off and coasting round with the clutch out. This works most of the time but is difficult to do smoothly espeically when you are braking into the junction
I thought a rear sprocket with more teeth would be a good idea?
It will reduce my top speed (not really an issue as i'm 99% in the city) but i'm hoping it will raise the revs a bit so slow manuervers are easier.
Has anyone had the same issue?
has anyone installed a larger rear sprocket? what was the effect?
