Look's good!! & yeh I like low gearing, would be hard for me to compare your gearing as you have a larger rear tire ( I think? ) my tire 130 90 x 16

with the lower gears you will have to shft quicker, as the shift point will come up quick. but once in top gear you will notice less down shifts needed. I Think.

when my sporty was stock 1200 (74cid) the stock gearing felt tall , I had to shift a lot more. now with 88cid feels like low gearing.
