Gen 3 -1+5 ??

Hey guys I'm currently at 16/45 (-1+4) on my 08. It sits at 64" stock motor ecu flashed, brocks exhaust and boltons. I'm about 170 suited and I have a 46t rear sprocket I can throw on to try for my last chance at the strip probably this year (1/4) mile. I also have a -2 front but I know that with +4 ill be out of gear by the 1320 mark. Anyone think that -1+4 is too much gear for my weight/bike l just want to make the lost out of the last trip to the strip

Edit: sprockets are for a 520 chain too!

65, pos

I'm -1/+5 on my 08, 185 lbs suited, ecu extended to 14k, 190/50 tire, no problem making the stripe. Traps 155-157.

04 is geared 16/43 (-1+4) at 63 in. crosses the stripe in 6th close to stk 12500 rev limiter at 157-158. 07 is -2+3 (15-43) at 67 in.with rev extended to 13500, crosses the stripe close to ext. limit right at 160 in 6th. 46 should work with ur rev limit. lot depends on if making power at those extended limits. 04 falls off on dyno right before 12500. 07 has different cam timing, pulls all the way with nice flat tabletop graph holding peak power until 13500. generally, gear it to peak out in the 1/4, but powerband peak is the main factor. 07 benefitted from tighter gearing, 04 would not.
