Cheapest way to lower the rpm is to replace the front sprocket to a larger size, or if easier for you a smaller rear sprocket. you will loose torque at take offs in first gear. also, do some math before you buy a sprocket, front you will need at least 2 more teeth to notice a difference, where at the back it would be like 8 less. see whats available. for harleys there are all kinds of sizes available, for your year im not sure but look around.

74 VETTE WITH 350 zz4 ENGINE 62mph THE rpm's at 3,000 and screaming (red lie starts at 5,000) what is my gear ratio and what should it be for highway driving


Assuming the tires are close to standard (i.e., 275/60/R15), this means you probably have a 4.11 ratio rear end in your Corvette. This was a very popular ratio on Chevys for drag racing. For highway driving you would want a higher speed ratio, such as a 3.55 or 3.36 ratio (or even a 3.08), depending on what is available. which would give you 70 MPH, 75 MPH, or 80 MPH at 3000 rpm.
You'll need to change the speedometer driven gear in your transmission for your speedometer to be accurate if you change the gear ratio.

High rpm at highway speed


No idea why you would drive that fast,
but 2800 is about right at that speed

Did you just get the car & never own one that
went to 2800 at that speed

Tap the brake around 55 & see if the rpm goes up,
indicating that torque converter lock-up is working

Don't do that at 70 mph

I have a 1999 Mazda 626 5 speed and my rpms seem to always be high weather I'm driving n town, 4th gear 30 mph 2100 rpm, or on the highway 5th gear 70 mph and rpms at 3100. This I'm sure is killing my gas...


check clutch for slipping condition,mayb due to worn clutch disc or a oil contaminated disc or a weak pressure plate not locking disc to flywheel therefore giving u a slipping condition and higher than normal rpms

What is the top speed of a 2002 Honda CR250R 2 stroke?


The only figure I could find was 70 mph. But from all the research, what the bike is known for is power and reliability. It is also extremely strong and can take a tremendous pounding. It is right up there with the comparative Yamaha'sn Suziki's and the KTM. Good ,uck.

Over-revving in 5th at 75mph all of a sudden


If the car rev'd up but did not speed up at the same time the clutch is starting to slip. Check the adjustment and recheck driving. When the clutch starts to wear this is how they act, only most people ignore whats happening and keep driving till adjustments won't fix it and the clutch has to be replaced. Have adjustment checked and keep an eye on it and hopefullty you won't need a clutch yet.

Mc22 CBR 250 revving to high travelling at 100kph


Its okay. For as long as you're not revving the bike on its redline for too long. CBR, XJR and other inline engines love high RPMS. They're built for it.
