I've no problem with my limiter when I'm going through the gears. My problem is when I'm in 6th, I'd rather be looking down the road, not at my tach to keep it between 10,500-10,900. When it hits the reves die out to around 9,000. Is it an engine kill safety? or is it just the nature of the rev limiter? It's geared with a 15/43 and 17" wheels.
So through the first five gears you don't hit the rev limiter or it acts differntly in those gears? Just as a guess I would say it is the rev limiter. Since the limiter kills two cylinders I would say 9000 would be about right.
