At the other end of the spectrum, I have a 55 tooth sprocket and also pin the throttle most times on the road in order to keep up with traffic and not get run over. Not that it lacks power, just that I have to spin at 9,000rpm to reach the low 60's mph. On the plus side, I never have to downshift into 4th any longer when hills come up.Fwiw i wanted to get my rpm down a bit while cruising in 5th so I tried the 47 tooth swap. It made more of a difference than I thought it would which was nice for cruising on flat ground but it took every bit of what little power I had out of 5th gear and noticeably hurt my acceleration. Now dont get me wrong, I assumed it would have a decrease in acceleration and torque but It was more than I had hoped for and so I switched back to the 50 tooth. With the 47 tooth, I was 100% full throttle damn near all the time. I think im in the minority when it comes to my thoughts on the gearing but I like the stock gear ratio. Just my two cents though.
