Very possible, depending on your bike, cruising speed and sprocket gearing.Meat_Shield said:i have always heard thats what 5th gear was for....there no real powerband in it. heard that you'll get better mileage in it opposed to 4th. but thats pure heresay.
Actually I had a brain fart - I re-read your post. What I meant was that it's possible but not likely that 5th may give you better mileage than 6th, if you have a six speed transmission. I suppose the same could be said of using 4th as opposed to 5th, but that's more unlikely.Meat_Shield said:ya i always use 5th when im on the hiway. unless there is traffic in that case im in no higher than 4th just in case i need the instant power due to a jackass cager. but i do notice better mileage in 5th....of course that could be just because they are hiway miles.
