Sorry guys, I posted the info about only being able to read my speed up to 152 MPH from my phone and this is the first chance I have had to follow up on that.
Yes, I am -1 in the front with a stock 45 in the rear (2008).
Yes, I adjusted my ratio down to 94%. FTR, I don't think it made any difference in my speedo reading anyway.
Another point worth noting, as I was WFO in 6th gear running up through the 152 indicated MPH, I noticed that if I backed off of the throttle an 1/8th of a turn, that the bike pulled harder. I wouldn't have thought that this would happen considering the F-T program and the 100% throttle, blah, blah, blah. I knew this could happen with carburated bikes as the butterflies would rotate past horizontal at full throttle, so backing off would get you more flow, but with fuel injection and throttle by wire?
I'm also considering going back to my original throttle tube. I don't know if the R6 one would make a difference on anything but the throw, and it doesn't have any negative impact on riding on two wheels, but damn does it make wheelies a sketchy proposition. I thought that I could get used to it, and maybe I can, but I'm taking my life in my hands trying and they ain't pretty wheelies by any means.
Maybe everybody that only reads up to 152 MPH needs to post up their info so that we can see the simularities.
