Bike ran great, suspension and brakes feel amazing. Just need to drop a tooth in rear sprocket. Right now I'm running front -1, rear +2. Only real issue was some cold tearing of rear tire. Tire pressure adjustment resolved the problem.

Which track? Is the -1 +2 too extreme? Kill the top end too much? Do you have the R6 throttle mod? Is that mod even a thing for the R7? I have the R6 throttle mod on my 400 and love it. But not on the big bikes.

Njmp Thunderbolt. I'm bouncing off rev limiter before first brake marker. And yes I have r6 1/4 turn throttle. You can check out the videos on YouTube @ Robt EL BOMBERO

I have watched some of your videos, good stuff 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼. I used to love NJMP when it first opened, but the TOLLS, traffic and weekend crash fest killed it for me. During the week totally differenT, chill environment but there is still the TOLLS 🤣. Anyway when I get the R7, the 1/4 throttle and +2 rear aluminum will be the 1st mods. If the stock chain isn’t long enough for the +2 rear, then I will do the -1 front sprocket. I watched your Pocono North video, I haven’t ridden the North course since maybe 2009! I did the Evolve EGT circuit in early May. Not a big fan but no TOLLS 😎.

I dropped to 15t front, stock sized rear, 520 VX3 chain. For my tracks I don't think I want to add more to the rear. Buttonwillow, Chuckwalla, Willow Springs (big and streets), Auto Club Speedway. You get ripped on by bike bikes at Auto Club no matter what you do. The R6 gearing topped at 135 and I'd get passed by bikes going 175+.

I have 2 different chains cut to two different lengths for the reason being at msrh has a long back straight and I was playing around with gearing running 15f and 42-44r haven’t quite figured out witch one I liked yet but at like Hallett it’s a short track and I’m not even popping 6th on the front straight with a 44 (45 wouldn’t fit chain too short) so I got another chain to run a sprocket range from 45-47 just to play around with what gearing I’ll run throughout the season at different tracks. (One is 108 links the other is 110)
