I did 16-44 because this my 1st bike an I heard this gearing would help keep the front end down at the track but im definitely gonna go with a lower rear gear soon

No, I didn't drop the gearing way down til I was stretched and lowered. I ran 46 (stock) and 17 when I was just strapped on the front.

16 44 is a good combo for the stock chain(lots of wb on the stock arm). if you get a longer chain, than run a 17 xx combo. whatever gearing feels right. the 16 is kind of a tight turn and will wear the swingarm too.

I had my best times with 16/46 with my weight.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem!

My best times (in my sig) came at 16/44 gearing... but the bike is making a little more power since then, and I can't keep the front end down. I'm going to go back to 17/46 or even 18/46.

Yes stock wheel base. Only mods at the time were Hindle pipe, PC3USB, 16/44 gearing and lowered front/rear. I was in Maryland with killer air though which really helped the MPH. Since then I have ran 10.1s at Denver in the heat, which Denver is a 6,600 ft elevation track, so a 10.1 there is on par with a mid-low 9s back at sea level. I'm out in Cali right now, might try to head to the dragstrip again some time this next month. I'm still at stock wheel base, but have done some more power mods and more weight savings. I'd love to be able to see a 9.30 or so.
