25 - 37MPH... won't hurt it as the R6 cooling system is over-engineered. But running like that is unnecessarily loud, and also places a lot of unnecessary wear on the engine.

If you're afraid of the 1-2 shift, pull the clutch slightly as you back-off the throttle while immediately shifting. Just as you're about to stop (at crawl speed), then go ahead and shift back to first.
