Ogre To Da Dyno She Go

I took the big ugly to moto milano to see what was going on after my second gear adventure. Jerry was like you want to put what on my dyno? so we did a base line run the carbs are way out of tune I just wanted to see where I was at with the gearing the bike is so stable in first and so mean in second.we ran it alitle in first to warm her up then went to second I was alittle scared the way it was pushing the frontwheel holder i thought it was going to break once we got it rolling it was doing 20mph at idle and topped out at 6000rpm 60mph in second. I shouldnt even post this because its embarasing the hp was way lower than I thought but that wasnt my intent hp can be made easy enough right now its about gearin and controll. in third gear at 2500 rpm the bike was doing around thirty, at 6000 rpm it was runing 82mph. the hp maxed at like 47 and the tourqe was at 54.8 her peak power was developed at 4500rpm Jerry suggested running a bigger sprocket in the rear to slow the wheel speed down and just use 3rd 4th 5th. but I'm going to get the clutch and shifter squared away and do some more pavement testing I'm at a 1:1 ratio now if I went to a 2:1 or is that 1:2 ratio that should theoreticaly cut my wheel speed
in half if I went 1.50:1 that would slow the wheel by 25% right that would be 60 mph in third and I still have enough tourqe to take off. my sprockets are both 24 teeth so I would have to make the rear a 30 tooth. I think?

I always appreciate input I'm just winging it after all.
