Redline and When you shift?

F4 750 riders, whats the redline?
And at what RPM do you prefer shifting at during regular riding (through city & surban areas).

depends on which bike you have. SPR has highest redline...~14K or something. I think EVO2/3 have higher redine than first gens. but don't quote me on that one. i think mine is 13,500, but i can't remember.

the second question is total preference. and how fast you are trying to accelerate. anything below 7K rpm may drag a bit but again that's personal opinion and what gearing/type of setup you have. when on full blast (regular riding for me ), i started trying a technique of applying a little pressure on shifter and when the rev limiter kicked in it would snick into gear. i read it somewhere and it works, but if you are a quick shifter type you can probably do just as good without doing that. oh, and once i'm out of first, i don't use the clutch anymore.
