I had 1 down in the front and 2 up in the back and was a couple hundred RPM shy of redline by the end of the straight.
I'm 6'2" and 180 in full gear. If I were 5'10" and 10lbs less in gear, I'd have been more aerodynamic and maybe hit red in 6th and still stayed shy of the limiter.

14/48 ?
We ran stock gearing. You have to be able to keep the flow in the back section,
but we were close to the limiter in the draft.

That's why I supplied my height and weight. I could have also said I had Hotbodies bodywork that resembles OEM shape and was using a Zero Gravity double bubble windscreen. Both would affect my aerodynamics. Last but not least was the mighty 67hp my Ninja put to the wheel at MMP's elevation. There's probably some other factors along with my personal riding style and preferences that would affect my gearing over somebody elses.
