That video is horrible bro, It is not good to keep in 1st gear at that high of an RPM/speed or any gear for that matter.. Shift... I ride around in 6th and sometimes 5th but not for long.. The bike has plenty of pep at 3k to get out of its own way in 6th gear.. Sorry to say it but that is killing your bike.

8,000 rpm in 1st gear = about 75 mph. Doesn't sound like around town speed. If so then I call "SQUID".


If you can't run with the big dogs,
stay on the f@ckin' porch.

My mechanically-sensitive self cringed watching this....you DO know you have five more gears, right?

lazieyegunman,
if you wanna rev high, knock yerself out.

around town, commuting, 4500rpm - 5k rpm and up. Just depends. I shift out of first gear about 35 mph. I'm +1 in the rear. third gear above 65 mph... just depends though. so much torque on the 08s - 12s, accelerating above 4k rpm is a breeze.
