Question about 1985 Suzuki GS 700 ES
My gs 700 revving too high at 70 mph. are they known for this? Whats the fix? maybe a sprocket change? are there any sprockets available? Bike runs great but seems geared like a dirtbike any help apreciated
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.
