I very rarely use 6th... I dont think Ive used it for at least three months and I ride quite a bit. The only time I use 6th is when I go over 90 for any significant distance... Just recently, I stopped using 5th too... Is this not good? It feels better to me, with more torque and better braking when I need it.

Side note question: How fast can you go in 2nd? Sometimes I find myself in riding in 2nd on the freeway going 60+ when the traffic is heavy... And 3rd? I broke 100 the other day getting on the freeway on a long onramp... I was pretty surprised.

our bike has gears?
man...no wonder i can only go 70
lol, learn something new everyday :) you have to program your bike to use the gears though, so you have rev it to redline hold it , snap it in first gear and let outta the clutch really fast and you then have unlocked all 6 gears! have fun!

I always try to shift to 7th gear........Pisses me off. I think the guy I bought my bike from lied to me.

ON a side note if I am cruising at a constant speed (anything above 60) I use 6th gear. Afraid to do the 520 conversion because with Gas rising I will start to rethink that the bike is cheaper on gas.
