MSRH Strategies

I am going way out on a limb here: I know the big V-twin has lots of torque, even at quite low RPMs, so you certainly have good power for acceleration. I could not tell what RPMs you were running, but it seemed like you generally may have been running in too high a gear, whereas the RPMs are low.

The concern I have, is that you may not have very much engine breaking upon deceleration. This could mean that you are spending more time slowing down, waiting for your speed to decrease. The throttle can be very controllable at the right RPM. And since you are not a featherweight, then a higher RPM would help with acceleration as well.

Now this is just one small factor and it takes so much more to build a complete program, but it is just an observation for what it is worth. By the way, my son-in-law has 4 Buells.

I would agree the bike is geared way high in my mind. I will eventual go up two in the rear so that I'm not so low in the rev range on the slower corners. There is plenty of engine braking though.
