Distraction, disruption, destruction. While enjoying a ride, you check your GPS, or check your six, and just at that moment an oncoming car decides to make a quick turn right in your path, or a car comes at speed out of a side road. Proper gear is important to survive in such situations, but avoiding them is even better.

Motorcycle final drive ratios are changed by many motorcycle riders for many different reasons. A few of the reasons riders may alter their gearing are to increase top speed on a straightaway, get increased acceleration from a corner or from a start or to increase the efficiency of the motorcycle by increasing miles per gallon. Most riders know that changing the front sprocket tooth count will produce a large change and, conversely, changing the tooth count on the rear sprocket will have a smaller effect change on final drive. What many riders do not know is how to calculate final drive ratio and determine the effect that a change will have.
The equation for final drive ratio is:
(Rear tooth count) / (front tooth count) = drive ratio
