shift light

I was wondering what RPM setting I should set my shift light to. Im not sure how long it takes to recognize and respond to the light, so I dont know where to set it.
redline at 13,500rpm.

thanks in advance for any advice.

i think it's safer, just look for the light and you can still pay atention to the road

I would get my bike dynoed and see where it's making the most power. then set it to that. they don't make the most power at the red line. they make the most generally 500 to a 1000 before it. that gives you some what of a chance to not have to change gears if you're going into a corner and not really need to shift and want to keep the engine at it's peak power rpms. well at least that's how i understand it.

When you're leaned over you're basically riding on a smaller diameter tire. The RPMs drop a bit, that little overrev is supposed to help keep you in the power AFAIK. May be wrong though.

BTW, I had mine set 1,500RPMs before redline, and that sheit took forever, I need togo change it to 15k.
