If you are running stock gearing now....a -1 +2 gearing will really wake that
bike up. The mid range on that generation is kinda flat/weak. I have an 07
7 fiddy with just a +2 rear and I love it. I have run t-bolt and lightning several
times with that gearing, no problem. I have ridden an 07 750 with the -1 +2
and it pulls very strong. With just the +2 rear the bike is very smooth and still
has that kick. With the -1 +2 the bike will be slightly more buzzy but its not bothersome at all. You can't go wrong either way.
First let me start out by saying gearing is subjective and changes with your speed and where you are making the speed.
Even with this in mind it all depends, specifically at Thunderbolt, many pros and club racers run these two tracks as five speeds. I'm one of them. We don't race on Lightning anymore so I can't remember specifically what I used. When I go there for a track day I just use what is on the bike, if I'm not going to race a track, I'm not that worried about fractions of a second.
For Thunderbolt I run stock gearing and I'm probably going to need to change it this year to 0/-1, I was really close to the rev limiter last year half way down the straight. I'm going to experiment to fix that this year.
Please when you post your pictures do not post it with Water marks on them. Pictures with water Marks Not allowed. Lets play fair those who are taking the pictures for us they are standing all day in the middle of the track just show little respect.

Hello all. So I'm new here and still new to both bikes and track days. I started started riding in Jan of this year. 2 track days so far with a K1 gsxr 750. I had to stop riding at the start of Sep for a planned shoulder surgery then had to go back under the knife so my...
Wanted to get some feedback from those of you tracking the new generation 750.
I will be taking my stock 750 to the track and will upgrade tires over the OEM ones of course. I'm on the fence about tires, as I will be using my bike for street and track day use. The tires I have on my...
I've been looking at getting some of the Michelin Pilot Road 4 for rain tires on a spare set of wheels so that I can still enjoy the track on a rainy day. I tried it once on my Q3+ tires and it was no fun. I like the PR4 because it has siping to the edge unlike the PR5. What do you guys think...
