    Has anyone ran across this? I want to increase the Scout's range.
    Yes, I know it will result in slower take off.

    The best way to increase the range would be to get a good tune from Fuel Moto. When I put their tune on a 2017 Scout 60 that I used to have, using DynoJet PVCX, I went from 46 mpg, to an astounding 51 mpg. Plus it ran like a raped ape!

    I'm achieving an average of 51Mpg non-highway. Once I move into ~70Mph highway cruising I'm stopping every 100 - 110 miles for gas. I want to push that to 150.

    @ScotD

    I have not ran across any info on it, but sure would be interested in said topic.

    Lowering the RPMs at highway speed would sure be a good thing, IMHO.
    I know it is an over head cam motor with no push rods, but damn it does sing at 80+ MPH.

    No wonder they call it bar hopper....
    Its like this bike needs a two speed in 5th gear....LOL.

    Something like that. It needs one more gear for highway cruising or re-engineer the 6th gear for better highway cruising.

    The 5th gear on the Scout 60 is the same gear ratio as the 6th gear on a regular Scout. The 111 is a lot nicer on a long haul, I had to wear ear plugs with my Scout 60, had Crusher Maverick exhaust, so at highway speeds of 70-80, it was at full song. lol

    Apparently the Victory Octane wheel fits on the back of a Scout. They are 17 inch and would do the same thing wouldn't it ? but maybe to a lesser degree than a sprocket. Might be the easier fix.

    I have been in contact with a company in Florida (Copnquestcustoms) who could possibly machine a larger transmission sprocket for the Scout. It would not be cheap but it would transform your scout into a touring bike and drop the rpms about 300 which is huge. Any interest out there fellow Scout owners?

    I'm interested but want to know why not make smaller rear? There's less chance of fit issues vs a larger front that might have issues in the pulley case.

    new member @Allen is gauging interest in a larger pulley made by:

    Company is ConquestCustoms.com
    Home - Conquest Customs

    Maybe give them a call about a smaller pulley.........Maybe they will decide to build both if interest is shown,.......

    Hell, I would be going with the Octane wheel and a higher profile tire, simple, few dollars, boom, done.
