I used to actually have a 48 on the back but have just replaced the whole chain sprockets set (previous set was getting a bit worn and I have a policy replacing the chain long before it should possibly break).  So I thought I would try a 47 this time.

I went to a bigger back sprocket mostly to get the bike to handle properly with the heavier front end caused by the big tank.  With the standard gearing and big tank the bike didn't handle nicely, especially in sand and mud, it didn't turn well, just plowed forwards at times and you had lots of little moments when the front felt like it was going to go.

The taller gearing has made it sort of balance itself out again.  So in technical stuff it retains that great neutral "go where you point it" characteristic that makes the bike so nice to ride  :thumleft:

I didn't feel much of a difference on the highway, it still cruises easily at 120-130 without me feeling that I'm wringing its neck. :thumleft:

Not seeing how sprocket size influences handling, but whatever floats your boat.
