Final drive ratio?

Post by Handyman Dan » Sun Jun 19, 2011 9:52 pm

I wanted to see if anyone knows if all the final drive have the same gear ratio.
I have a 1996 GL1500 SE and when I am running 80 MPH the enging is running about 3500 RPM.
I was thinking that if I could find a taller gear I could lower the RPM and get better fuel millage.

I think all the GL1200's and GL1500's have the same gear ratio but I am not certain.
