Okay, now that I've ridden it, it seems like the bike is almost looking for another gear when I reach 6th. Recommend changing rear sprocekt a couple teeth to make it smaller? I am getting an exhaust this week, but I don't see that making the top end open up anymore. If anyone has changed the gearing to improve top end, what size sprocket did you go with? I use Sidewider sprockets Ti-Moly series on my off road quad, but don't know if they make street bike sprockets....any info please.

I'm really not wanting to get to a ridicuous top speed, and as of now I am still breaking it in and maintain the speed limit for the most part. I just feel the bike needs a little more on the top end. The RPM's that I've been to thus far is around 6500 to 7000. Maybe it's just me and I think it needs to be opened up a little. I really don't know much about these bikes, so what I think I need may not be exactly what I need. I'm just going by the way it feels...but that could be the breaking in.

Yeah, sprocket specialists gave me some good sprockets a while back. I really don't want to run in the higher RPM's in the bottom end. I will most likely stick with the stock gearing for now, get my exhaust on and let her breath some. I think that's the problem that I think is going on, I feel like there isn't enough breathing room there. Thanks
