Hehehe...that IS a fender eliminator. It's a KTM and not as compact as some but I can live with it.

Just looking at what you did for your bike. What are your feelings on the 16 tooth sprocket?

I love it but I'm not saying it is for everyone. It depends on one's riding style/objective. I don't care about top speed anymore (topped-out a modded Hayabusa in 'another state' years ago and got my fill of warp velocities). So, I want my power focused at lower, street speeds+. Ninety five percent of my riding is on mountian twisties where top speed is completely irrelevant. I wear out my tires on the sides, not the centers. The 16T gives me outrageous punch up to 110 or so when the lack of streamlining really starts hurting performance anyway. I'm content with a 16T. ;)

What rpm at 80mph in 6th? I would like to make it smooth at 75 to 80 in 6th. If 1 in the front is too much, I wonder about adding one or two at the rear.

I don't know my 80 MPH RPM off hand. Adding 1 to the rear seems almost insignificant but +2 should be 'felt' seat of pants. I bet you would love +2 on the rear. :)

Needs led indicators, or more compact ones.
My 2017 came with them

If you wouldn't mind, I would appreciate it if you could check the rpm at 70/75/80 in 6th. That would pretty much cover highway riding without shifting.

I'll try to do that on my next ride which may be a few days from now since rain is upon me.

Rule of thumb: -1 tooth on countershaft sprocket is about equal to +3 teeth in the rear, as far as gear ratios go.

I went to a 16T countershaft sprocket and it seems about perfect to me.

I went 1 down on my old FZR, and it was great until I had to cruise the highway. The bike just wasn't in it's sweet spot. That is why I am thinking Warbaby's thought of two up on the rear. Thing is this bike makes good power over such a range I think there are more options.

Do you ever cruise at highway speeds?

I checked my 16:38 gearing this afternoon (6th gear, OEM speedo)

60 mph: 3500 rpm
70 mph: 4000 rpm
80 mph: 4500 rpm

If anything I would like it a little lower, maybe 16:40. 3500 to 4500 rpms is not this engine's Happy Place.
