if its all stock then your running 14/50

when your drag racing from a dead stop try starting in second and see how you do

Stick a 13 on the front. Its the nuts, the bike still pull 86mph on the GPS and is very fast through the gears. Fit a jetting kit too and you should be fast enough.

+1 on the 13t front sprocket. It's easy enough to do.
