'06 R6 gearing for MSRH

What are most you running?

I would imagine -1/+1 would suffice?

Well, look around... that's what they're running. You'd like to top out on the back stretch, optimally.

Exactly.......but -2/+4 seems like you'd top out between the keyhole and the bus stop.

Adam, -1/+1 is a good choice. That's what I use there and it works really well. -1/+2 is more FUN there, but you run out of gearing on the back straight. If you need to go -2/+4 at MSRH on an '06 R6, you need to learn to ride an R6 better.

That said, a lot of gearing is rider preference. Try em all and decide what you like. Sprockets are relatively cheap.

Thanks, Derek. -1/+1 seemed more logical to me, considering where I am in gear/rpm on the back straight as of right now. I BARELY make it into 6th.....if I get a good drive out of the sweeper.

Good deal Adam. At MSRH getting a solid hard drive out of the sweeper is a fast way to drop your lap times. 600cc with good tires = wide open throttle!

-1/+2...run in third most of the track...except back straight, front straight, pit straight and sometimes in gut check I'll shift to fourth.
