"Gearing Commander" web-based tool

Here's an interesting and fairly comprehensive-looking tool for playing around with sprocket/gear combos and seeing the effect on speeds in gears, torque, chain setup and so forth. Lots of bells and whistles. Takes a while to load but has a database that covers lots of different bikes, including the VStrom of course.

Has me thinking of going to a 16-tooth front sprocket sometime in the future if one is available, to fine-tune my commuting setup. Apologies if it's something y'all already know about, but I did a search here and didn't see it mentioned.

Thanks. This provides some good information. I know each bike is a little different, but does anyone have a dyno for a stock bike showing the "typical" hp and torque? That would be useful so you could tailor the gearing to be in the sweet spot.

The destination is not important, only the ride there...

Current bike: 2007 HD XL1200C (soon to be back on a 05 VStrom 650)

Previous bikes: Several
