 RMP range

Go down 


PostSubject: RMP range   Fri Aug 20, 2010 9:16 pm

does anyone know what the rmp range (red line) is on an 08 WRR, I put one of those tach/hour meter n my bike to keep an eye on the rpm's but the book just tells the idle rpm not the redline thanks

Somewhere around 11,500 ...but there's some debate it actually gets there.

Just ride it......don't sweat the small stuff.

You'll know when you hit the rev limiter.

When that happens....shift.


by the way....don't you mean rpm ?

Throck ("Grasshopper"): You need to learn to listen to the bike throughout the entire range and understand ("Feel" and estimate through your arse) where you are in the power band.

Eventually you will be able to estimate, with better accuracy than visually looking at a meter, where you should be in the RPM range under the various trail/road attributes.

A good rule of thumb is to run it up and back it off (nominally 1/8 to 1/4 throttle) at which point you need to make a decision to shift or dial it up further.

If you are anywhere close to stock gearing (factory sprockets) you won't have to worry about maxing it out anyway. It won't pull redline.

I was just thinking the same thing, Sarah.
With stock sprockets, "maxing it out" in 6th gear ain't a problem because it comes with overly tall touring bike gearing.
If anything, the bike will always be struggling to pull that gearing.

Stick it in 4th, hit the rev limiter and see what the revs are........ thumb
