Re: What rpm do you change gears at?
shift when warranted. if you are cruising around, you can shift at 5-6 and the bike is not going to accel hard, but it will not bog down either. if you are getting on the freeway, run up a few more thousand to keep the bike in more of the meat of its powerband. if on the track, redline or near redline. as you get to the higher gears, it is better to shift a bit sooner. maybe 1-2k below redline for 4-5 and 5-6. this will keep the bike off the overrev.
