everyone does a -1 to help taller gears with wheelies.. y not a plus 1 so you can ride one longer in 1st then grab second and go??

and it would help top end and make the gears run a lil longer

or am i jsut thinkin to much how we gear in motocross racing!

just curious!

Wouldn't that make it harder to wheelie?

It would do the exact opposite as the -1. Slower acceleration, less easy to wheelie, higher top speed.

If you want to run wheelies out farther then use the the BP to ride for miles. If you want to go faster then shift
I start in second and can run stand ups to a 100+ mph but usually keep em at 50 or 60
How much faster do you have to go?
I guess to answer your post if you are -1 then lift it in second and you're good!

actually to answer you, yes +1 does the opposite.
