Hi,
The variables related to your question are numerous. While not scientific, you can purchase inexpensively on eBay or many other places a selection or “driven” gears and experiment. There are numerous mobile phone apps that accurately gauge your speed so you can determine if the gear you put in the bullet housing results in your speedometer matching the speed on the app.

I think what he might be hoping to find out is what tooth count it came with so he can do the math and buy just the one he needs.
I don't think it's answerable since he states it has both 3.55 and 3.90 gears.
To the OP...keep in mind, the speedo gear that was used assumes the stock tire height, so make sure you calculate that in.
I need a speedo gear change too. The kits I see are all nearly $100 for the whole assortment. I'd rather do the math and buy just the one I need as well. Since mine is almost exactly a nice even 20% off, and I have a degree in mathematics, I just calculate as I go :)
