One tooth up and the counter shaft sprocket will surely fix the 6th gear low speed lugging vibration
Since my NC feels awesome at 2,600-2,800 rpm in 6th, and it is not lugging, I would welcome a lowering of rpm from 3k at highway speed. Conversely, I would be every bit as happy at 3,300 rpm in 6th, if I was still only doing 100-110 ish kph.
that was said to me about the 2011 triumph speed triple too. Didn't stop me from winding 5 extra threads on the rear preload to suit my weight.

This bike is not about speed and quick starts....plenty of other bikes out there for that.
Riding around at a decent speed and enjoying the ride with great mileage is what this was designed for, no matter the brand of bike they all can be improved to fit any given riders wants or needs.....that is why the aftermarker is so huge. Some folks like lower cruise rpm and the best mileage as possible....gearing changes do that. If you dont like it dont do it....pretty simple really.
