I'm not sure what you mean by getting to redline. Are you saying that the bike is topping out at 6k when you're in 6th gear? You should really look into what sprockets you're running if you have that much of a problem. Forget that, 3k off is more than sprockets, your bike is straight up losing a ton of power somewhere. My bike takes a while to get to redline in 6th even with my jacked up gearing (15/43), with standard gearing you're talking over 150mph actual speed. Try tucking under the windscreen also.

is 15/43 lowering the gearing from std by that i mean higher revs less speed? more punch out of corners etc??? My boy is a tall lad over 6 foot tall and 14 stone so no lightweight . might see about some mods to air intake system i have friend in hawaii who invents things he has a site www.redmondinnovations.com

he is looking at using some dimples inside air intakes dont know how the science is supposed to affect things but its supposed to be a good thing ...
This guy is clever at this **** ..

That is technology I have heard zero about. His issues are far greater than "tweaking" this or "adjusting" that. If you can't reach redline in 6th, either you have an engine that isn't producing even stock power levels, or you are upshifting too early from 5th. You really should look into the basics before you go for the exotic airbox modifications. Basics being spark plugs, clean carbs, chain slack, throttle cable slack, air filter and fuel lines. As far as getting schooled by r1's well, get used to that...

Re: Red Line in top gear?

I agree with loco. I'm 6'0 235 and the bike will get to redline pulling my big *** so I would cheak the basics. cheak the sprokets if some one put a stunt sproket on there that could be the cause. I have a 16/43 set up

Top speed is 155 in 5th. It won't redline in 6th. Only horsepower overcomes drag. At that speed, you'll need about 20 hp for each 10 mph.
