no that was on the stock swingarm, stock wheelbase.
16/44 gearing (almost the same numerically as 17/46)
yes he shifted into 5th, because he was hauling ass! I wind out at the top of 4th crossing the trap, same bike.
Ryan just gets out of the hole so much quicker and faster than he has time to grab 5th and pickup ET and mph in the same distance, it has nothing to do with the gearing. He could probably go 8.90s on my bike with the proper gearing.
