Why are those ratios not smooth? Heck, even looks like Sixth gear ratio is higher than Fifth! I've seen this inconsistency before on other manual transmission gear ratio tables, VW Golf and Subaru -- there must be something else going on that explains it?? Maybe two "final drives"? Maybe with vs without OD?

First Gear Ratio :)1) : 3.93
Second Gear Ratio :)1) : 2.32
Third Gear Ratio :)1) : 2.04
Fourth Gear Ratio :)1) : 1.07
Fifth Gear Ratio :)1) : 0.82
Sixth Gear Ratio :)1) : 0.88
Seventh Gear Ratio :)1) :0.72

I've read the pdf before and it doesn't come right and say why 6th gear is the ratio it is but I suspect it's because it shares a driving gear with 2nd.

I know when you place the Kona in sport mode it will not use 7th gear. This maybe the difference why.

This would make sense.. since all gears above 4th are overdrive.. but you would feel the difference when shifting up sequentially to 7th in normal mode... interesting...
