nah, i was at about 90mph in 5th when i bounced it. I'm not really into top end runs, bike is used to ride to work and stun, i think i've had it in twisties once since i bought it. Gonna work on slow wheelies and 12s.

why the hell would anyone in their right mind gear up that much!!! if you can twheelie with stock gearing why even waste the time and go up that many,learn with stock gearing, you may actually be able to ride a wheelie more then 10 feet b4 u hit the redline! and you arent gonna do 130mph geared up that much brotha..your speedo is WAYYYYY off!

why the hell do you think low gearing will kill trannys and shift fork? same fuggin forces go through it with stock gearing possibly even more due to the heavy 530 chain
and how many of you guys talking about not going fast enough use all the top end their bike has and if you do you are a moron and will end up dead!
