i ran different gear ratios....        

I went there with stock gearing for the first time, i was red lining most of the time.

the next time I went with 15+39, the bike is more relax and not constantly hitting the rev limiter, but there is no noticeable top end / top speed gain... At the straightaway, it just doesn't have the same amount of juice to push from 80mph to 100, from say, from 50-80. So it is gaining rev very slowly after 80mph. I thought i would have a lot more top speed headroom with this gear step up, but I cannot even chase down another 250 (new gen) that was in front of me the whole time.
