when i near redline in first it has a huge flat spot like it actually may be losing power, not only not gaining any mor epower after 11000 but i think it may be losing it after 11000...any ideas?

U mean in comparison to the top end hit of 2nd, 3rd, 4th... gears ??

I noticed that too, on my bike, and i hope someone can explain it.


I think it's related to the ratio for 1st gear.... not so much a fault, but a mechanical effect.

It's just the top end of 1st gear, it feels flat, in COMPARISION to the other gears. Im guessing it's got something to do with the ratio, cause it's geared very low for take-off.
