So, does putting a 41 tooth gear on it take away some of your acceleration? How about top speed? Do you have as much acceleration when pulling out to pass on the highway? If a smaller sprocket is better, why did the Honda engineers set it up the way they did on the stock VLX?
I find that my VLX will buzz at about 60-65 mph, but then seems to smooth out at 70-75. I guess it's still vibrating though because the objects in the rear-view mirror are hard to see because it's shaking.
My VLX doesn't really want to go any faster than 70-75 anyway and I think it is just out of power (too much wind resistance). I'm wondering if by putting a smaller sprocket on the front will make it tougher to go fast because at lower engine rpm's you've got fewer hp.
