efficient power.

I have 03600rr. When do the RPMs start losing power exactly? 14000 or so? Usually I take the engine all the way to 14.8-15,000RPM through the gears, but according to a dyno(and/or expierence)when's the best time to shift to get optimum power.

On the track I too run the RPM's to redline. I've been known to bounce off the limiter on a few quick occations heading into a turn. But the real challenge is keeping the needle above 8K at a minimum. So when you shift, how far down do your RPMs fall? Again, I'm assuming that this is related to track use. The key is to keep it in the powerband and that's pretty easy to do on the high end, but more difficult on the low end.

I don't think I really answered you questioned, but I'm just trying to post enough to earn my first helmet under my avatar!

"Earn my first helmet" Heh, funny.

Yeah trying to keep in the power band is smart, and I'm going to assume it's about 8700 to 14,000.. after 14 it still gets power just probably would be better to downshift- that way it would drop RPMs to maybe 11ish.(depending on the gear of course.) So that way you have 11k-14k of power instead of shifting at 15k and then only getting 12k-14k of power. I guess.

But there's something about taking it to the redline, it's like my heart isn't satisfied until I hear the motor screaming at 15k and seeing that bright REV light flicker on.
