Putting some teeth into this epic ride.
I ran to Rose Kawasaki on lunch today and picked up a new front sprocket. It has 15 teeth instead of the factory 14, and it is supposed to lower highway RPMs by about 2200. That's a huge difference that will save engine wear and increase mileage even if it hurts acceleration a bit. There is a guy in town that is allegedly returning 82 mpg with one of these. I'm installing it. This blog may soon become Life at 5000. :-)
