Shift light question

Given that a certain bike has it's rev limiter cut in at 10,500rpm, where would you set the shift light to come on given that it's a single light, not incrimental?

If we talking about the RS, then it all depends how big your budget is for engine maintenance. Certainly, 10,500 will be very conservative. But, there is a lot of power beyond that. My hunch is that once you'll be left behind on the straight by the thou's, you'll stop having any regard to maintenance budgets and will want to move the rev limit around 12,000. Again, depending on the software, that 1,500 makes a HUGE difference.

To answer you exact question, I'd set the shift light 200 RPM below the rev limiter. I am surprised yours even has a rev limiter.

Yeah, me too. I've set the light at 10,200 for the time being. but even on the cold run-out at Donny last year it was still pulling very hard when the limiter kicked in. Would like to move that up to around 11500. I assume I need a man with a laptop to do that through the ECU?

Why didn't I think of that? What a great idea.

Does your engine have a serial number?

To be honest, I really have no idea what's inside the engine other than what I've been told. Looking down the inlet's it looks like the heads have been ported and flowed, but really other than that it's anybody's guess. I'm going to get it on a dyno after Cadwell and see just what it says.

Just got to make sure it's not JHP's lying barsteward dyno!!!
