You think its matched to the max revs at the fastest stretches?
I always assumed it was for the hardest torque to accelerate as much as possible out of the corners. I've seen some of the guys do a wheelie out of a corner.
Wouldn't larger rear sprocket drop your RPMs?
I'm still very hazy on the whole concept of how sprocket size affects top speed, torque and acceleration.
