For commuting shift whenever you freaking feel like it..

The bike will break damn near any speed limit in first gear..

Re: how to shift on a GSXR 600 k7?

for the first 500 miles id switch around 5000 rpms. No more than 6000. Vary your rpm's and speed during the break-in period. As you ride you will develop a feel for when its time to shift properly. On the street my rpms are usually pretty low when I shift. Once I hit the back roads though they will get pretty high up before I shift.

Re: how to shift on a GSXR 600 k7?

luckily for me, I had the manual tranny swapped out for an automatic tranny when I bought my bike. I don't have to worry about it, the computer does it for me

You have to learn how to crawl first.

Have you ever driven a manual transmission car? If not I'd park the bike for a little while and get a feel for things in a car, it's much more forgiving. When driving a manual transmission car under normal conditions you don't watch the tach and shift at exactly the same spot every time, you just shift when you feel the need.
Listen to this guy^^^
If you don't have clutch and throttle control (things you can't learn on an automatic transmission) then you're probably gonna crash your brand new shiny black bike.

Re: how to shift on a GSXR 600 k7?

Seriously... this bike you are talking about is a GSXR, no??
If so just ride it in 1'st gear all the time, no need to change gears as it will do you 150kmh easily without having to shift. Now if you wanna go faster than that I recommend you get a manual scoot/moped and start learning the art of changing gears before is to late, or turn that gixxer into a automatic bike

Neither RPM nore MPH. A "pro" rider as you say, will learn the way the bike feels, and will shift accordingly. I almost never look at my tach, and the speedometer I only watch when I'm tying not to get a performance award from the local yokel.

Re: how to shift on a GSXR 600 k7?

I guess you took offense to my first post. Seriously, you just need seat time. It's more of a common sense thing as you just feel it. Do you drive a manual transmission car. Same principle, you just want to be as smooth as possible on the throttle and w/e gear that allows you to be smooth and fluid on the bike.
