Gearing. What have you tested?
 
I am thinking of doing a +2 rear sprocket

right now at 75MPH in 6th I am at about 8,000RPM. I want a little more go around 70-75 MPH.
For those of you changing gearing
What are you seeing RPM/feeling wise on it?

peak horse power on the bike is at 8500. Dont think it will give you what your looking for.

I Guess I will have to stay off the freeway then.
Holding it wide open to stay at 75 to stay with traffic sounds retarded to me.

I miss my big bikes lol

my 195 lb ass.

traffic flys at 75-80 MPH. If i stay under it's almost death.. Well on the freeways here. So I try to stay at 75 in the Carpool lane but most the time I find it wide open to keep it at 75

Im 170. WOT for me is 94.
You would go down in back up in front for more top speed lower rPms

the fastest I have had this is 81.. that's it.

why would I want to go Up(front) Down (rear) if the bike can't even hit full redline in 6th stock?

my GSXR600 woudl not hit redline in 6th on a track in AZ. I did -1/+2 and was able to hit redline in 6th without a problem and the bike pulled the whole time..

so what would +(x)/-(x) gearing help if the bike doesn't have the power/gear reduction to pull it's own weight?

I just noticed. Your sig. shows you having a few things done to your 250. Mine is 100% bone stock.
My wifes has a two bro's slip-on and I can tell her's is faster. it also will do 85 with me on it without a problem

.....fastest ive gotta mine to was 89-90..... downhill with barely any wind, best tuck i could manage.

but im almost full throttle at 75......with wind.

6'1" 240lb rider.....bike is sluggish at anything more then 70. traffic in my area moves fast....75-80mph.

I AGREE this bike is a dog on the freeway ecpecially with the wind in your face.

I changed the sprockets on my Ninja250R and it made for a much taller and more usable 1st gear, but I don't think the CBR needs it. The stock gearing is the best I've seen on any 250. I'm taking a "if it works, don't mess with it" approach to my CBR compared to going crazy with mods like I did with the Ninja. The CBR is as close to perfect as I've seen in a 250cc street bike in many respects. It doesn't cry out for mods as urgently as my Ninja did.
