Should I re-gear?

2000 xc500 non ves. The p.o. put the track extension on it so now it is a 136". I weigh about 220 and had it out today and got her up to 90 on the speedo and the rpms were right at 8000. I know this is about 250 rpms low but for a 500 she really goes. So am I close enough to my rpms, or should I drop a tooth?

Move the secondary anchor back one hole. This will bring the peak rpm back up to where it needs to be.

RJ,

How exactley do I do that? Besides cleaning them I don't really do to much with the clutches. Thanks
