fwiw, I accidentally downshifted in to 1st gear @ 70mph with my SV650, not once, but twice, brain fart
first time I probably had 50k on the bike, I had recently switched to GP shift
I decide to sprint quickly up to a ton for the hell of it, solo ride, no traffic, as I pull away from my stop, I bring it up to redline in 1st, than push down on the shifter into second, click, bring it to redline in 2nd, here is where I had my brain fart, I put my toe under the shifer and click it back up into 1st then release the clutch, instant rear tire chatter, tachometer pointing due east (estimate 14,000rpm) but I quickly realize what has happened and pulled the clutch, when I got speeds and revs matched, I continued on, no ill effects, it was probably only at 14k a split second
second time, about 90k on my SV, I was riding with my son's (one on VFR, other on Yamaha Maxim) I was bringing up rear as we went thru a slowdown area, I was in 2nd gear, as we passed the slowdown area and got to open road, we accelerated quickly, again, I bring it up to redline in 2nd, and instead of pushing down to 3rd, I click back up into 1st, this time I was a real space cadet, I was doing everything I could to keep the bike shiny side up, why was a skidding all over the place, probably only went on for 2-3 seconds, but at the time it seemed forever, the tach was pointing due east
maybe that is what caused my valve guides to be worn at 135k
