That's lawyer liability speak in case someone does 180 for an extended period and blows the tire due to over heating it.

47 rear sounds a little high. I ran the pilot sports that I believe come on Busas and SV1000s and the manual said run at 36 F/R and 38F, 40R for 2 up.

I would think the contact patch would decrease in size a bit running with that pressure. Might make for an interesting wet riding experience. It all depends on how hard you push the bike though, of course.

GEARING !? REGEARING YOUR BIKE CHANGES HOW FAST OR SLOW IT TAKES OFF OR TOPS OUT, FOR STUNTING MOSTLY!

no not realy, you would do one of two things get up to the red line faster or slower dep. on how you changed your gears, not sure on the direction up or down but basicly, you will take off faster or wheely easyer, or you will take off slower but top speed will increas. if aplicable, some bikes only go so fast, but you get the idea! i regeared my old 600 down 1 front and up 2 in the back and it takes off faster but the top end was only 139? something like that ! if you aint stunting dont bother,

Also gearing it shorter (less teeth on front sprocket and/or more teeth on rear sprocket) the gas mileage would decrease AND the speedo would be waaay off if overdone.

On some bikes like my Bandit, dropping a tooth in front or up a couple in back will actually increase the top end, due to aero drag.
