Has anyone changed there front or rear sprocket to a different ratio? Or is stock pretty good? I think stock is 12/32.

My seat of the pants calculation with old bikes I like to gear them so that they will just barely pull redline in top gear. Most bikes are over geared from the factory, so this is what I feel is optimal. On a good cool day you should be able to tuck in and go as fast as the old girl is able.

When Bike magazine tested a 450 Desmo, they found it undergeared and changed the 12t sprocket for a 13t, but still hit the red line in top at 99.97 mph.
