Unless you add 50-100 hp you are not gonna see a higher top end and still get out of the hole like you seem to want. I dont guess you have have any idea what it would take just to increase your top by 10mph

to gain acceleration and top end, you are going to spend more on the mods than you did on the bike. Based on what you have said so far, i would suggest you sell the bike.

If you change the sprockets you will drop the top end considerably. I have to decide what you want more. Its pretty rare that you can top the bike out. You will always be able to enjoy that hole shot though.

Just change the rear sprocket with a +3 in that case, but it is usually recommended to replace chain at the same time, so go with a lighter pitch to save weight and you will feel a much quicker 0-60, just watch out for the wheelies

Start with -1 front. It's cheap and your current chain will still work. If you want more you can add teeth the the rear. Or you can just start adding to the rear. I would drop 1 on the countershaft sprocket if it was me.

mohawk helmet helps smooth the air bubble out and creates a larger buffer zone.

Which is better though, the foam ones, or the ones that are like real hair?
I keep hearing conflicting answers.

The crossplane R1s are restricted in US trim. They're down 8+hp from the euro spec bikes. a reflash will get you back the power.
