RPMs & Shifting
What is a typical range of RPMs when you shift?
I recently noticed on my 04' GT, that when I allow the revs to hit about 4,500+ RPMs the shifting from first to second is much smoother. I'm talking typical riding, not racing around. I have been keeping the revs up for the last several tanks full and everything feels good, but my MPG has gone done considerably. I may lighten up on the RPMs again to bring my MPG back in line (except between 1st and 2nd). I always though I had a rough gear issue/problem between 1st and 2nd. Perhaps it is just riding techniques
When do you shift?
