Wouldn't going -1 or +2 on the gearing give you the same effect on midrange versus a full exhaust at the fraction of the cost?

Not exactly. Changing the gearing of the bike cause it to run at a higher engine speed given the same road speed. It brings you higher into the powerband. Yes, you will have more power, but its because you are now at a higher RPM, not because the midrange is improved. Thats not to say you dont feel the effect akin to imrpoved midrange though.

So graves has best midrange up to 7500 where the other companies make same power? Or the other companies shine better?
