    Default ZX14 Drag Race Gearing

    Was wondering what the optimal gearing for a 200lb suited rider on a stock motor zx14 at roughly 68" wheelbase should be. Just bought my first zx14 so not familiar with these bikes. Been reading 16/44 but wanted to see what everyone is running.

    Thanks

    We're running 16-46 now but the rider is around 240 suited. It's a tad wheelie prone off the line. Lighter rider could get away with less gear.
