You bet, which of course, makes the bike go even faster, perhaps 165+ (at least!!!!). Remember, it's all gearing, not power or drag, and top speed can be computed from gearing, with a little "she was pulling like a frieght train at 145 indicated" confirmation.

This has to be one of the most ridiculous technical discussions yet on this forum.
