I think you're being intentionally obtuse.

You're losing sight of what the OP is talking about. In other words, people ignoring what the engineers designed and taking it upon themselves to "re-engineer" their bikes to run at much lower RPM's then is even remotely necessary, much less advantageous.
Good. Bad. I'm the guy with the gun.

Another day, another foot injury!
