Question Top speed

As I'm thinking to get new KTM and I have a question.

I any one using stock gearing 15/45?
More frequently gearing is 14/50 and 14/48.

Please tell me your gearing and what was you maximum comfortable cruising speed and top speed?

I do race rally sometimes (500-700kms) and can't decide between 350 and 450 EXC. I like that 350 lighter and at the end of racing day I will still have some energy. I'm just 75 kg and race 04 WR450F and its realy top heavy bike for me with all rally parts on it. I know new 450EXC much lighter then WR450 but guess 450 will exhaust you more then 350 in multy days events.
Correct me if I'm wrong.
