Gearing????????????

I've beaten this horse to death over the past year. I was just talking to "stunter" and I asked him what he would put on a 01 ZX6R for Rear Sprocket and he replied "70+" that seems a bit high considering stock is a 42? Suggestions

Yes, I do have a death wish

The huge sprockets are more just to go slower at the same RPM. Most of the guys I know run around 7-10+ in rear. But the guys that go really slow, run up to 15+ rears.

He can ride forever, cause he's high enough that he's at the balance point, or behind it.

If you are gonna have a parking lot bike, you can put that huge sprocket on the back, but if you are gonna be on the streets/highways, I think -1 front and +2 in the rear would be good.

First thing, learn that rear brake.
