I'm brand new to bikes. I'm all about the break-in period; but 6th gear at 5k rpms is barely 50mph? Is this the same for you? This would pose a problem for highway riding during break-in right?
I only have 70 miles on this thing so far, and all I'm immediately surrounded by is 35mph stop-and-go roads. It's been pretty easy to stay under 4k for that reason alone. But yeah you're right... it's getting old; and there's no way i'm going to stick to the manual once i start commuting with it. It's just unsafe at that point.Don't tell me you actually managed to keep it under the 4 grand without giving into temptation and giving it a bit of a squirt??
Mew like the pokemon? You'll have to get on your bike and change that 150 to 1500 .I completely understand. It's frustrating keeping the bike under 5 grand but I'm keeping to it for the most part. Varying RPM, and putting Mew through heat cycles, which I am told is just as important. And since I don't have much time to ride, even on the weekends, I only have about 150 on her now. LOL
