don't forget neon and tasslesIf you install the 16" rear you will have to change the front too. I would suggest a WM1 /21" on an 8" over springer fork.That will let you settle into the king and queen seat more comfortably.A set of apehangers can ease corner entry through the added leverage they afford.And above all,paint it a nice shade of metallic blue!
Actually it can affect corner speed - taller gearing has less engine braking. That was something I had to deal with on my old GSXR750, in order to get a good exit drive in many corners I had to run in screaming the engine, which killed my corner speed until I installed a slipper clutch.gearing will not affect your corner entry speed. Corner entry speed depends more on tire grip, pavement, rider skill, suspension setup.
Stock is way too tall, I went down 1 in the front on my 1098 and will eventually go up 1 or 2 in the back. There aren't many tracks that have a 180-mph front straight, so you gear it to hit redline in 6th-gear at the fastest point on the track.Ok thanks, what gearing would be best for alot of track time? If you take away some top end through gearing will it help enter and exit turns faster, or is the stock ratio best?
