owners manual shift schedule ?

Im not going to break my break not following this am I?



1st to 2nd 9 mph
2nd to 3rd 15 mph
3rd to 4th 21 mph
4th to 5th 27 mph
5th to 6th 34 mph

My red line is at 11,000 rpm, its ok to use some of those rpm's right?

Kind of wish I had a rev limiter so I dont blow it.

You should have a red limiter.

Anyways those schedules are crap. I dont know who writes them, but I dont think they have ever stepped withing 100 yards of a bike

Hahahaha.

That's rediculous. You can still be in first at 34mph.

this newb's gotta post again

the best advice I've had from a fellow sportbiker (who took me on a ride) was to "get my revs up". That 9mph in first gear stuff will get you hit by a cage. In my limited riding experience, I've avoided many bad situations with cages by having enough torque to get the hell outta dodge (literally...those damn trucks). I wasn't trying to show off, just trying to get away from people who will not let you merge, want to pull out in front of you (and you're goting to fast to safely break) and irratic, maybe, DRUNK drivers. I'll stay in 1st till about 20 mph. 2nd till about 45, thrid till 60 forth or fith on the highway (65 plus) unless I wanna (or it's safe to) cruise. Then it's 6th. The bike can handle alot more rpms, I know, but like I said this newb's gotta post.

you'll stall out riding in town at 34 mph in 5th or 6th. Stop n' go traffic you see.

Must be for when you have aftermarket pipes and a cop in tow.

I am sure they have used the same old crap for said speeds & shifts since was back in the mid 70s. After all it worked then when bikes had no more then 19hp.
