So yesterday I rode for about three hours trying the whole time to keep up with the 600s. My average RPMs were usually between 9,xxx and 11,5xx. How bad is that? Or is it ok for my bike?
Remember this...
Thing wear out more fasterer the more rpms ur using....
Everything has a certain amount of rpm life.....
Bearings, spark plugs, everything that moves will only last so long....
The more ur valves go the faster ur adjustment times come....
The more them spark plugs fire the faster replacment time comes....
U get the idea....

Well I ride about a ten mile stretch of interstate like 4 times a day
I have to go 80 just to keep up with traffic sometimes
So I think a sprocket change will help me get outta the dang 10-12000 RPM range.
Also good gas mileage is my friend lol

You're fine as long as everything is properly adjusted and fluids are clean and up to the proper level.

I always run full synthetic cycle oil, and would suggest it if you are pushing your engine hard most of the time.
