run a higher grade oil in the forks and adjust the spring-rate on the shock to be harder (for your weight) this is a good compromise and prevents your arms leaving their sockets every time you brake and the rear end "squatting" under accelaration, wheelies much easier too! (more rigid rear)

the gearing really depends what your doing with your bike . I was running a 15/43 gearing but now I've switch to a 13/43. I found I did not need to go much over 100 mph . running the 15/43 I noticed that I shifted into 5th at 90 mph . for highways the 15/43 was a bit better . but most 450 sm bikes on the track will never see 90.
