If you hear a strange loud bike behind you, don't be alarmed, I am just waiting to draft pass.

+2/-3 from stock gearing or what you had at the track?
Will it actually pull redline in 6th geared that tall?
Just a heads up, make sure the chain doesn't rub the case on over run with the much larger front sprocket. Also that it doesn't dig hard into the chain guide on the swing arm with the much smaller rear sprocket.
The Texas Mile is past, what are you going to try for?

Yeah I'm lost as to why you would want to be geared so high on a 250. Can they even hit the rev limiter with stock gearing?

in a draft at TWS (Texas World Speedway) down the straight, we can *just* touch the limiter running into T1 (tach around 14.5k) with -1T on the rear (geared slightly taller than stock).

that was this weekend, though, with cool, dense air. we actually ran shorter gearing during the July round because the bike wasn't pulling as strong in the heat.

not sure why you'd need to gear higher than that, though.
