Discovered an error in the Gearing Commander database ?
If so, please
let me know !
think you found an error in the gearing database, please send me a
Database Error Report using the grey button near the bottom of this page.
The database only contains all Stock gearing information of a bike, all the
results are calculated online and are not in a database. So you can
report an error on the gearing data which is located at the top of the
GC main page for Stock setup and for the gearbox ratios.
I add a new bike to the database I always try to verify the data sent in
by the users. Most of the time I can find an owners or service manual on
the internet and compare that to the data supplied by the requestor.
But sometime a bike is rare or at least the information about it is and
I cannot find a source to confirm the information. In that case I will
mention "NOT VERIFIED" in the list in "Versions/History".
Sometimes it is hard to determine for what year models a service manual
is valid for so that way errors sometimes occur. I've also seen
differences between listed data in owners manuals and in service manuals
for teh same bike in
which case it become very difficult to choose the right one. There are
many web sites that display technical details of motorcycles but
most of them are not very accurate and they make a lot of mistakes.....
found an error, please make sure that:
is about the bikes Stock gearing data or gearbox ratios, not about
any results in the tables as
they are calculated
are talking about the same bike, watch the year(s) for which the
data is valid, indicated in the GC database as "(2004)" or
"('92-'99)" which means this data is valid for all models from 1992
until and including 1999.
are not talking about a different M.P.RPM. I know you think I
should enter the redline RPM but I think in top gear you should use
the M.P.RPM. More info on this:
supply a reliable source for your statement like an internet link to
an owners or service manual. Or scan the all technical specification pages from your
manual and mail them to me. Don't just say "it is in my manual" as I
can not verify that.
give me a chance to verify and update the information before you
mention the error in your favorite forum....
