I'm all for a tall top gear or over-drive.
I just don't think they need 5 cogs to get there.
Dunno about a Baker. That's big money. Easier to drop to a smaller front pulley and / or larger rear.
I don't like to cruise any higher than 110kph (both my last tickets were 115 and 117) and am concerned about lugging the motor.
Well, I keep trying to shift up into 7th on the SV...
Now that I'm older, I thought it was great that I seemed to have more patience. Turns out I just don't give a shit...
On the 07 Fatty I dont change into 6th till i hit 180kmh...it regularly sees past that and has over 100k on it now...untouched from the floor bar a set of cams

Trouble is it will be useless above 3rd gear in town if you gear it up.... Of course there is no rule that says you have to cruse town in 6th.... but I do, because I can (Not an SV owner mind).
Winding up drongos, foil hat wearers and over sensitive KBers for over 13,000 posts...........

So Bruce,,,Have ya put your bike into 6th gear yet or are you still holding out for the right advise to come along
That would be worth a google.
