better mileage with 18/44 and with most tires it puts the speedometer right on.....but that has little or nothing to do with racing

doubt the gearing change had anything to do with it. You're just getting better. For reference I went from [email protected] with stock gearing, to [email protected] with -1 front.
to me the front end doesnt come up any more with a 5k launch but my 60" stayed the same 330s got better an 1/8 mile time got better

you will get better et if you manage that wheelie without taking tq away from the bike with gearing.

put your chin on the tank and look through the windscreen, not over it, it will help!

Leave the 44 tooth sprocket on and get a 16 tooth for the front. You described the front wheel as "wobbling" and I didn't see it come up in the video. Go for the gearing and learn to ride with the wheelies. How do ride a ZX12 and not be comfortable with wheelies?

Ok, so the forks are hanging out of the top triple tree by 1-1/4" ?

I thought the lower clamp would only fully seat on a short section of the fork due to it being tapered thus restricting the amount that one can safely lower the front end. Anyone recall what that maximum is?
