Hi, im using LC135 (standard) and now i need to travel about 40km+ to work, do you guys have any suggestion what to do if i want to comfortably cruise at 100-110 km/h?

for now is ok but can hear the rmp high to cruise that speed, i use regina chain 428 15t-39t. Should i change the sprocket to 38t on my next chain or any other suggestion?

I'd suggest change the front sprocket to 16, to drop the 100km/h RPM by ~500.

16T front sprocket is easier to modulate the rear sprocket for daily use, compared to 15T.
Also, bigger sprockets means better overall chain life.

going by experience n not theory, dropping the rear sprocket from 39T to 33T (leave the front sprocket alone), gave me a much smoother ride on the highways with less vibration at top speed.
downside is a little slower off at the lights n less pulling power with pillion uphill.
no problem cos i normally ride solo.
also in town, i tend to use 3rd gear most of the time, tat's how smooth the kapcai is with a smaller rear sprocket.

I am using 14-33 for my ride which it can cruise at around 6.5k-7k rpm for 100-110kmph. sometimes I ride it at much lower rpm like below 6k for 90kmh
