You can do all of that, but none of it is necessary.
If you step back and let the bike explain itself to you, it's not difficult to feel it's powerband and ride within it. It happens to be above 3,500. If you ride a Japanese inline 4 it will be different yet. If you have a vintage parallel twin, it's another story. Try a 2 stroke and it may make some power down low, but expect a swift kick in the ass above 6,000 rpm. All engines perform differently.
I guess my problem is that I've owned several cars from the 60's and 70's all the way up to modern and some were death traps. I've owned over a hundred motorcycles, some are kick start only, some electric only. Some shift on the right while most shift on the left. Some have drum brakes, some have disc. Some used "GP" shift while others were the normal configuration. Some were built in 1958, some were built in 2008. Each machine is different and I had to be flexible. I couldn't get on my 1972 Norton and expect it to ride the same as my 2008 S4RS, or vice versa.
If you just learn to find the sweet spots, no throttle tamers, 14 tooth sprockets, ECU remapping is necessary. Sure you can do all that, but they run just fine without it. I've got 4 Ducati's at my house that say I'm right.
