Question bikers,

Normally when you are throttling hard : what rpm did you change gear from 1 into 2? For best result.

Becoz, it sounds like the engine want to explode when it reach around 8000..plus my balls vibrates like crazy :lol::lol:

Sorry, im a newbie.

usually about 10 or 10.5k depends on how high in the air the front tire is. :D

Ok, when I got my bike for the first few weeks I couldn't believe the low end power and rolled around at 3 to 5 grand on the tach. After a few hard twists I got used to the idea and kinda liked the ride to be honest. So after getting used to the bike, modding a few items to get rid of some vibes I started riding at higher rpms all the time. Now days it depends on where I am and how I'm riding, who I'm riding with but pushing it to 10,500 isn't a big deal and lots of fun. I do agree with the front wheel elevation has allot to do with how you pop that clutch!
