Default Geez that was quick...

Been weighing up the options for a few years now and imho its no contest...Ivan Albins 1-5 Helical stregthened gear set.
More than strong enough, negligible noise difference from standard, custom ratios, add in Tony Floods expert assembly, its all good and completed in next to no time. Tested it last round at MC's with 4th placing in the wet, drifting those new ratios was just sheer joy in the wet

Keep your 6 speeds, mines 37kg lighter and just as strong and now even faster

Tony Flood has supplied and recommended these sets for a long time.

You have a few standard ratio options or order a full custom setup:
Sport 3, 2, 1.48, 1.17, 0.963
Street 3.45, 1.94, 1.36, 0.96, 0.76
Sport/Street 3, 2, 1.48, 1.17, 0.76

These helical gears are much wider/ hence stronger than original and the quality is first class. Discuss pricing with Tony as the options are many and varied. Personally I was not interested in a noisy square cut gear set. Nor was I interested in a radical 6 speed upgrade with its weight penalty. pm sent on my costs.
