This what I did. One extra and I think two off the back. Would not do it again.Can't you try a 1t larger front with 1 or 2 t smaller rear which will achieve the same without affecting chain length?

40 or 36 rear sprocket....uuuuh the clutch will burn! Really think you will b happy with the 42. I think that is the smallest you can go on the AT.Thanks guys. Good info. Hear what you are saying Paul. I agree AT is perhaps not really meant for high speed touring. I brought my AT to travel from the UK to The Gambia passing through the Sahara desert, a 4,700 mile ride much of it off road and used it for a year off road travelling throughout the country but my last trip to Switzerland was via those endless flat staight wheat field roads in France, you know, 2-3 mile straight, a 45 bend followed by another 2-3 mile straight follow by......
I rarely go off road these days as Im getting to be an old fit but could never sell the twin. We have been through too much together. She still rides well, no vibe issues. Amazing really as I ve dropped her a few times and see her topple down the road doing somersaults!
Amazed you get a a 36 teeth rear sprocket. I think the 42 sound sensible but still tempted by a 40.
Thank for all your help.
Ps messages Oro Paul to see if he wants to meet up for a ride sometime but your not that far from me either. Let me know when your heading out again or coming down this way and Ill meet you somewhere.
