I'd sooner post off topic rather than spout clueless drivel like you seem to enjoy doing. Apparently most of the board agrees with the later viewpoint.

"Junior," that's rich. I'm probably older than you are.

OK So I have a question, does changing your overall gearing really make that big of an acceleration difference?

This is why I ask, from a mathematical perspective, I understand that with a gearing change you're allowing the engine to rev-out faster, however you are also shortening each gear's effective speed window.

So yes it feels like your accelerating faster, as the rev's are building faster than at stock gearing, but the speed that gear takes you to, is slower than a bike with stock gearing. So if you are accelerating a little faster, it is up to a slower speed...

Now in mid-range roll-on, I can see a geared bike pulling ahead of a stocker (getting into it's powerband quicker), until both bikes are in their top-end powerbands, then they'd be even again.

ALSO: If you're really looking to compare bikes performance, dont do a 'up-through-the gears-race'. Try a 6th gear roll-on side-by-side at highway speeds. That takes out any variable of rider skill, shifting-speed, etc. Its just a straight acceleration/dyno-pull side by side. I've done this many times with my '091KRR vs. other bikes. And its cool to see the different power-bands come on at different times.

Anyone have any thoughts on this??

I suggest you start the race on his right side and when your race does start, hit his kill switch.... You'll win every time!!

That's all this thread is about and you get the drift by your post. Not the case with some tools on here. To answer your question, IMO (I'm ready flametards) from a 45mph roll the geared bike (-1), already turning about 8000 in1st gear will not get enough of a jump to outrun stock gearing in anything over 1/8 mi.

If u are racing a longer distance than a 1/8 or 1/4 mile u want 2 stay in your peak hp for a longer period of time. So when u gear the bike u speed thru your revs...
That gsxr is good for all 180-183 with -1 but must have a Ivans TRE

From a 45 mph roll you'll cover the 1/8 in about 3-4 seconds. If that's some peoples idea of a race that's cool but around here we run a little longer and faster. Stock gearing wins EVERY time at those distances.)
