playing around with gears
I realize what I didn't like about 6th gear. When in it at about 70 mph, it's in the 3500 rpm range. That is not a good place in the rpm range on this bike, because it tends to hick-up and surge (kind of feels like being between jets on a carb. bike.). At my 600 mile service, I am going to ask that they remap the injection to richen the mix at 3500.
To test out my thoughts, I shifted into 5th at 35mph, and the motor had plenty of power to pull under 3k. So it's not a torque issue, but an injection issue.
I am going to leave it, at least until I get that 600 mile service. Doug.
