I am sure it will stay together... Yamaha like every other brand does their homework. Love to hear a Leo Vince on that one!

Ok, I'm abit confused. The engine revs to 17k, but peak power is at 14k. So why have 3k worth of over rev? seems pointless doesnt it?

I would think you'd want a little run-off room so that you're not bouncing off the rev limiter every time you wanted to experience full juice.

BTW Vash, this is most likely my next bike. I want to experience the exact opposite of what I have now. This should be it.
