Sounds like there is another problem with your SRAD then just learning to shift. My 600 can easily exceed 90MPH even with a low RPM start and in top gear.

To answer your question, you don't have to take a "running" start at 90MPH. I normally shift at about 10k-11k rpm when driving aggressively and shift at 8k-9k in normal driving. That being said anything over 4000-5000 rpm would be okay.

Sound like you may have to tune a little bit or have someone check your air/fuel ratios if you aren't getting high rpms or top speed.

On a blast I shift just before redline (13k) and when in town I don't shift much because I like the noise it makes on the overrun from 8-9k in first or second


Seriously though, you'd know if you had a problem like that, I would've thought it be a pretty obvious problem to if you can't get above 90 on a 600.
