It is not mostly for stunting but for setting gearing for what you are doing because bikes don't necessarily come from the factory with the optimum gearing. For example the 06 R6 and other 600's you want more grunt so you might want to gear down your bike or if you ride the track you will probably regear your bike to optimize it for the tracks you ride.

Same here with the Rex. Also sprockets dont change the speedo reading...

I guess that depends on where your speedo is located. On my old MuZ it was on the front wheel and the clock ticked even if the bike was in neutral!!:BangHead:

On my SV, the speedo is around 10% optimistic. With -1/+2 it's about 18% GPS verified high. Yours may be different.:dontknow:

It does on most newer bikes; they read off the countershaft sprocket with a hall effect wheel sensor. Speedo healer will cure it tho.

Yep, just mean that some bikes speedo readings werent changed with sprocket swap. Rex also takes the reading from the front and is optimistic.

BTW, for tire pressure I run 38f/40R around town. I think the busas are pretty close to the weight of the (stock) Rex, so I'd agree that anything in the high forties in the back would be way out of line.
