Sounds like that gearing is working for you. I run -1/+1 on mine and run low 5.70s also. I went to +2 on the rear and had to make an extra shift in the eight...with no air-shifter I went back to the +1. What do you weigh ?

You guys make me feel proud to own a ZX14. I ran 16/46 all last season with 1.40~1.44 60's all day. Got a fresh 48 on the lift now that I can't wait to try out. 1.3's here I come. :buttrock:

Some of the smaller guys can get away with a taller gear on a stock 14, but if you are 160-230 pounds 16-48 is the gear for you. It has a top speed of 166 mph with the limiter removed. ever 1 tooth on the front gear more will get you 10 mph in top end speed. I used a 16-48 gear at the track and when I want to go street riding I put a 18 on the front. The stocks ZX12 had a 18 on the front and it will fit the 14. If you are a bigger guy say 260-300 pounds you need a 15-48 or a 16-51 top speed 156 mph.

I got a buddy that is 150 using 15/45 on his zx14 with a 60 shot. He is like 69 inches and the bike runs low 5's in the 1/8 easily with high 1.30 60 foots.

a 15-45 is the same as a 16-48 with his set up he would be better off with a 17-45 it would take the wheelie out of the bike and allow him to use the nitrous sooner, he should be going low 1.30s
