i have been considering dropping one up front but i'll wait until i get an exhaust and remap and see how much more power that gets me. i like how the bike is geared but a few more ponies wouldn't hurt.I’ve got about 400 miles on my SMC now and I love this bike! No problems whatsoever, but the gearing feels wrong for street riding / canyon carving / running from the law. My thoughts right now are to drop 1 tooth off the front and add 2 or 3 teeth to the back. Anybody care to share your thoughts on this?
