Guys, Sorry for what I'm sure is a dumb question, but wtf is 3:37 gearing?

I've seen a few comments about it in the past, but can't find any info in searching. Is it a transmission gearing ratio different than stock? Better?

Any input would be great. Thanks

3.37

the 3.37 is the overall drive ratio, motor to trans to rear wheel. this can be changed by a number of ways not just the primary gearing, inclueds final drive sprockets , trans gears ratios , .etc? easy way is to change wheel sproket but to much and you need a differant length chain/belt,
I recomend changing the trans sprocket as it dos not effect swingarm geomitry drive, or the primary, most big twins through the 90s had the 3.37 ratio as factory..
end of the day it gives better take of from the lights, but raises the rpm 300 or so at Hiway cruising,
