Entering all relevant gearing
data: Change loaded Current settings to Your current ones
After loading the Stock data using the 'Load Bike Gearing' button,
almost the same data is loaded in to the Current and Custom
setup fields. Only the Final Drive of Current and Custom setup have already been
changed for with assumed values.
If your bike is still in Stock setup, that is if
you are still running the default tire (dimensions) and the default front and
rear sprocket, it basically means your Current setup is the same as the Stock
Hence you need to change the Final Drive of the Current setup fields
back the Stock ones.
If not (Stock anymore), change all different
fields to reflect your Current bike setup.
Normally you would only change tires and sprocket but maybe your bike had some major
surgery and you changed the Primary Drive ratio or the type of chain (pitch) or
the number of chain links (or belt teeth) and
maybe you tuned your bike to do an extra 1000 RPM.
Suppose a bike is
loaded from the database like with
Current Front & Custom Rear already
changed from Stock:
As you can see the Current Front
sprocket was changed (-1) and the Custom Rear sprocket was changed (+3)
Suppose I'm still using the original Front sprocket but have changed the rear
tire to 180/55/17.
In that case I need to change the Current setup like this:
a 190/50/17 tire (Stock) to a 180/55/17 tire (Current) and
changed the preloaded front sprocket back
from 14 to 15 teeth (as I'm still using the original sprocket):
Next would be to change the
settings for the Custom Setup. Click below link for an example.
Change Custom settings to the ones you are considering
