Gearing for ASMA

Postby punisher » Wed Sep 07, 2011 9:48 am

I was talking to Roger about gearing and changing the sprockets to a -2F/+2R I believe is what Roger told me if I’m not mistaken. I'm just curious to know what other people are running and what works well with the track. Also with this setup I can only assume my acceleration is going to increase dramatically. Thanks.

Might help if you state what bike it's going on, so people with the same bike can chime in.

For starters My best guess/advise would be... :alien: for what its worth :mrgreen: Gear for a top end speed of 140 mph :albino:

I can only do trades at this point with the bike and 2000 cash LOL. Sorry. But I wouldn't mind knowing how much its going for though.

Tony might have to pay you to take the bike.
It's been down a few times and has some motor issues.
Top speed isn't the most important thing to gear your bike.
Corner exit speed and fewer shifts to run the track would be a start.
I may be wrong but a lot of racers don't even get to top gear.
Right now, the queer paramedic aka "blended family" is the only 1K CBR that comes to mind.

One low speed crash, and the only motor issue is what to do with the 180hp it makes... :D

I only ever make it to fourth gear with my bike. And the max Speed was about 138-140 at one point that I could remember.

Theres nothing a wrench and time can't fix. But I put to much money into the 07 and forgot to get the sprocket and chain changed out but I didn't want to do it till I got on the track first and worked on the basic settings on the bike done first before I moved to other things.

Shirley, you're not implying a bike's speedo reads generous...

Ya but I'm not confirming on that cause i'm not usually looking down just before I break so thats what I recall seeing at one point as the highest.

OP, I get about 146mph GPS recorded on a 2007 GSX-R1000 no build and pump gas. (Edit: with the wind at my back. Into the wind, about 141, sometimes as little as 139)

That's with -2/+4, and I gear to a) have the bike handle, and b) remove first gear. I don't gear for top speed, but with that gearing, I hit 173mph at Miller (also GPS recorded, with video if you're curious).

I think he's implying that.
And don't call him Shirley.

It's more than a classic but I don't have a word in my vocabulary for it!

Hey buds..!
New in here with ya' and looking forward to getting out to my first
track day here real soon. I realize this topic goes far 'n wide and
is a little dated on the forum.

Could I pick a couple brains and see what gearing you folks could
reccomend for ASMA for an ol' guy on an '03 ZXR636. I've read
through some info that people have reccomended what I believe
is for street riding..? They speak purdy highly of a -1/+2 setup.
Looking at keeping the bike as smooth as possible and not over
working itself. She's completely stock, short of exhaust and filter.

Any and all help is much appreciated!
Peace,
Mike
Hell, try it... Even if it don't go right, they can't take your birthday away from ya'.
