I'm not a top box guy so take my observations as such. But, gee that thing is BIG. Get that thing loaded and wheelies would be real easy!!!!

The FJR 6th gear is only 10% shorter.  That translates to somewhere between 500-700rpm.  
Call it an OD "lite".  In comparison a Kawasaki C14 6th (OD) gear is more like 25%.

Do you know the cruising RPM of the Concours 14 at 80 MPH? I've tried to find it on the internet and can't determine the RPM?
