Optimum RPM

Hello riders,

I am new to R6. A question crossed my mind. A silly one though.
Is there an optimum RPM range per gear for R6?

Re: Optimum RPM

Anything below 10k and the R6 is a turd.

Re: Optimum RPM

Depends on your setup. Sprocket changes will adjust that number though. Lower at the front and/or higher at the rear will bring that RPM number down for you. Important thing is figuring out WHY - the optimum RPM for what? The track, drag racing, wheelies, street riding, fuel economy?

When it comes to RPMs, my general rule of thumb is, the more the merrier!

Actually it is the exact opposite - but you probably knew that and typed it wrong.

Actually, what I typed is correct, but you probably misunderstood or didn't see the context of the OP - referring to the optimum RPM.
