Donsy I'm currently looking at a standalone shift light set. The F3 is so hard to see and I want to set mine at about 11,5 when the bike is making peak numbers. I've seen a few online but are kind of clunky looking.

Cheers, Jon-Michael

My bad, I interpreted that as riding mostly around 7k...not 7k+....sometimes I'm a bit slow in the thought process..

Regardless, the advice on selecting gearing is the same.

COTA has a straight where the MotoGP boys routinely go well over 200+ mph. That track looks to be a fun and very fast ride. Wish I could join you..

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

I was going to go up 2 teeth on the rear for my 2007 F4, dealer has a 43T brutale sprocket which he thought was 2 teeth up. Realized this is actually 3T change. What do you think about going up this much, next track day is next weekend and I could get it done quick since it is in stock. The two tracks I mainly run are 2.5 and 1.7 miles, usually only get to 4th gear on the straights. Don't want to turn it into a wheelie machine. Would you recommend I just order a 42T?

Go for it! 3 in the rear is (very) roughly -1 in front. It's a good change but not too big.
