Changing the gearing to 17/41 is the best thing that has happened to my z900 and driving style. I drive fast, too fast, but you wont see me accelerate beyond my skill level but if possible I overtake everything in front of me and only rarely I have to shift down in order overtake traffic due to the massive torque of the z900.

I'm convinced the z900 can handle a higher gearing and actually doing so striking a much better balance between torque, revs and speed than the stock gearing and thus getting a much better fuel economy and less wear and tear.

Still, Frontline and George26 have raised good points: the speedometer will become inaccurate (4,25 % at 80 km/h) and the gearing wont fit racing the tracks.

What is the GPS verified top speed you have achieved after the gearing mod?
Would really appreciate if you could post a video link of the speed run  :002:
