With a performance pipe 5k+ rpm is what you want because that’s pretty much where most mild pipes starts to hit the powerband, some pipes don’t hit the power band until 8,000 RPM

I don’t think you really understand what clutch tuning is about, basically your bike doesn’t move until it engages which you want when the pipe hits! You can’t have it both ways on a one speed,

It’s just like a high stall torque converter on a auto tranny drag car,

you basically don’t move or have any power until you’re at your stall speed so if you have a 5000 RPM stall speed on the torque converter your car is going to scream at the 5,000 rpm the entire time which you want to keep into into the power,

You may not be tuned perfect with your carburetor either but having Low RPM tuned clutch you’re going to stall on a hill and you will have to pedal up it and your takeoff will be boggy until you get enough speed for the pipe to hit
