papajoe. You still have no idea what rpm's your hitting, just know your not hitting rev limiter right? I suggest a tach for tuning purposes. Higher rpm's will mean higher top speeds (usually). It may be time to try a different variator. If you were wise enough to get the wide band for carb tuning the tach seems a small expense for proper gear tuning. :meh: If you can't reach 10,500rpm with your current set up the Met gears will just make it even more difficult to reach current speeds.


hmm.. good point. So at max throttle... it just purrs along (sounds like a single prop airplane)... no bouncing off a limter.
I have a Vapor tach, but RPM readings flip out after 7-8k rpm. Strange because my other ruck has the same thing, wired the same way, and reads all the way to 10k+ rpm.

I also read that I should plug the Pair valve(?) on the valve cover when I read wideband. I didnt... just had it vented w/ a filter on it.
I also picked up am unlimited CDI, so I'll try that too...

Overall, its still fine for commute... but its always fun to go faster... :o)
Acceleration feels very good for a GET.

pair valve is not on the valve cover. Its on the left bottom side of the head.

You can read. And by reading you would realize your in the Big bore section. Not the stock bore section.
