stock gearing??

Recommended Posts

Maybe I'm just overly cautious with the engine rev, but I'm finding it difficult to imagine how this bike is supposed to run at speeds higher than 60 MPH.

I am out of 1st by about 12 MPH. By about 20 MPH, I'm shifting to second. I will ride 3rd up to around 30 MPH but by 35 I'm REALLY wanting to shift to 4th. I shift into 5th gear around 50 MPH. I haven't had it much faster than that yet, but is 5th really tall enough to take me to 70 MPH and beyond?

Is this normal or am I being overly cautious with engine rev? When my butt is buzzing, that's normally my signal to shift.

you are being overly cautious. Twist her until you hit the rev limiter. That will give you a feel of where to shift. Yes the bike will do all of 70 for hours no problem. But it's no cruiser, so it's gunna buzz.
