Riding in high RPM range?

Not crazy high, 7-9 mainly- in 2nd 3rd gear...

Anything bad about it other than bike temp being few degrees higher?

thanks

Won't damage anything, youll just eat more fuel if youre cruising about and piss people off in residential areas. If youre just trundling about knock it up a couple of gears and keep revs lower so the injectors arent in 'lets fkin go' mode...just remember to knock it back down the gears to hit 8k+ if you wanna overtake anything

My 600rr track bike spent many thousands of miles between 10-15K on the track. That's where it was happiest.

Well, I wouldn't necessary agree that it won't damage anything. Yes, you are riding within its operating range but you are also putting on unnecessary stress on the engine.

The bike is designed around that rev range upwards...

Damage anything? Not at all. Increase wear and gas useage? By a large amount.

06 F4i- Yoshimura RS-3C, Racetech springs and valves, Ohlin's rear shock, steel brake lines, 520 conversion. 82k miles and counting.....
08 600RR- Stripped trackbike. CRG shorty brake lever, goodridge front brake lines.

Instead of 200,000 miles you'll only get 100,000.

Funny, cause the valves in my F4i were worn out by 82,000 miles and at the shop getting all new valves, keepers, seals and a valve job as we speak. On top of that I don't know of many track bikes that make it past 20k either, and it's not the cylinder pressure killing them.

Let's be honest with ourselves here. Less than 1% of people will ever wear out a 600RR motor, WAY less than 1%. Ride it as hard as you like, you won't reach the end of the motor. It'll be wrecked before that happens.

Not a problem riding around 7-9k rpm, that's what I do around town with stop and go traffic. You've got around 6k more before hitting redline so the motor is quite capable handling the rpm range you're asking.
