Thanks for the replies!

Bought a did X ring chain and sprocket set off eBay for £55, not a bad deal. Then bought a 39t rear sprocket.

Fitting was easy with the right tools, front sprocket but was off in seconds with an impact driver and shortening the chain wasn't too difficult with a Dremel and chain breaker (took 3 links off)

39t makes first gear useable as it's not over in a matter of seconds and feels more like a "big bike" first gear. 5th has essentially become 6th with 6th only really being a motorway gear. Acceleration is pretty poor in 6th, so I'm just using that once I'm upto speed.

I think some of it maybe wind resistance so I'm fitting a screen to help a little with that.

I was looking to cruise at 70 @ around 8000rpm, I can't remember exactly but it seems to be around that mark. Speedo is under reading by around 8% now, which is fine but I've got to remember that!

I think 15 front and 39 back might be pushing it, I'd imagine 6th would become pretty useless as there isn't the power there to pull that low ratio...

To help remember the registered speed vs actual speed, remember there is a white light on the dash that you can set for rpm. Set it for the revs you're doing in top gear. Maybe that will help the throttle limit. Best wishes on that, and congrats on the conversion.

Ah cool, can I change what rpm the light comes on? Currently it comes on at 8000

Page 2-11 of the owners handbook

Not sure if it can be altered, but
In eco mode it blinks between 4500 and 6000 rpm, stays on over 6000 rpm
In norm mode it comes on over 8000 rpm

THERE IS NO "ECO MODE" light.

The light is related only to rpms. This light can be set to various rpm, at which the light will come on. If you stay below that rpm, the light goes off. It's in the manual, but if you just "f" with the two push buttons on the "dash" you can find it, then set it. The manual states that 4g rpm is best fuel mileage.
