rear gear

i was just curious what my rear gear would be i am running a 700r4 with 225 75 15's in the back and when im in first at about 6,000 rpm im doing close to 60 mph which is nasty concidering 1st gear in a 700r4 is pretty low. my motor has plenty of power so it doesnt bother me that much but i would be happier with a lower rear gear...just curious what i have now.

From my calculations you have either a 2.73 or 2.56 rear gear. You would be much better off with at least a 3.08, preferably a 3.36 or 3.55. With a 700r4 you could even go 3.73 with those tall tires.
