Gearing?

Anyone with an 07 or newer RR have any suggestions on what gearing has worked good for them at Fontana, Button Willow, Las Vegas, or Salt Lake. Thanks.

Sounds like somebody is doing WERA next year.

Its best to just buy a bunch of gears and bring them to the track for Sat practice sessions man, what works for somebody else might not work well for you due to specific shift-points and top speeds.

I just purchased a 15/44 sprocket set and will be installing them for the 2010 trackday season. Most of the tracks that I do here in the Southeast don't really have a really long straighaway............Road Atlanta being the exception of course.

I think it is better for him to go with a suggested one as changing the gearing also changes the geometry as the rear wheel moves in or out.

Well, if your serious about racing, you buy multiple chains at multiple lengths for all the gearing you plan to run at each individual track, no need to change the geometry.

Check out gearingcommander.com if you haven't already. You can play around with the numbers for hours. Shows change in geometry and everything. I've got -1, +4. 114 links. Still not getting in 6th gear at my intermediate pace at tgpr or Barbers.
