Wondering if there is a need to do that modification or not.

I note the Aprilia 660 Tuareg folks are doing it for less vibes on hardtop road speed.

Any need for that on this scoot??

I've watched almost every Norden 901 video on youtube - foreign & domestic - nobody seems to talk about it.

Husky musta got it right out of the box.

Anybody feel the need or have done this mod yet..?

TIA

I am mainly trying to drop rev's while sport-touring...maximizing mpg etc.

I am 95% on road with very little off road prowess, sadly.

I like the ADV bike type as they can carry a bunch of gear easily.

Thanks for the reply.

I went down 1 cog in the front to a 15. Much better for off road, specifically steep climbs. I also prefer this gearing on road/gravel as this ratio seems to work better at speeds that I normally travel; however I do notice slightly worse gas mileage on the highway at 110 and above.
Also went down one on the front. Ride mostly gravel and jeep roads. Works perfect for that.

110mph? What's your max speed or comfortable top speed now? Not that I go 135mph that often... When I do it's on a closed course in Mexico obviously
