You are right about the top speeds being academic and its the riding conditions at that very moment which define where you will max out at.

Just curious about two things since you mentioned you run a +2R. How is the difference in acceleration vs stock? Brutal enough to want to keep the front itchy to pop in the initial gears all the time?

Any idea how much top end you have lost with the +2 realistically?
