    What sprocket ratio?

    I'm looking to change to road gearing. I want to get close to 65mph and also have safe acceleration. 14/47? 14/45?

    It depends on your definition of "safe acceleration". Stock gearing, my TW runs out of breath at about 72mph (speedo) going downhill. Redline is somewhere near 85mph so it ends up being a lack of power issue. I can maintain 65 almost everywhere except steep hills. Noticeable acceleration stops at about 65. Only noticeable difference above that is the engine sound as speed increases. Above 65, handling starts to get a little sketchy with any wind.

    If you're looking for acceleration above 65, I'd look into the 225cc upgrade and even then; don't expect a whole heck of a lot. As for running at 65, your oil consumption of that little one quart in the crankcase is probably going to be in the neighborhood of 4oz every gas tank (my experience).

    With stock I get about 55. Acceleration is very bad after 45.
