    Not to sound like an ass but if you are so interested in this, get on your bike and check it out for yourself.

    I still cant understand why you dont go try it out on your own bike rather than "Demanding" someone else supply you the information.

    Get a TRE and that shaking at low speed is way better. Much smoother at 5mph.

    Maybe you guys are just stupid or you can't read...I said that I'm still breaking-in mine...And I do wonder is it really possible that nobody knows.

    This forum seems to be useless.

    Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out. Seriously, I'm not going to beat the piss out of my bike just to answer your question...and calling us stupid isn't going to help your cause.

    Hey Kaj the m90 is a cruizer (all be it a sporty one) not a splat bike. You want to bounce off the rev limiter and boast to your mates about it , buy a splat bike and log in a splat bike forum. The M's have attitude which rubs off on the rider, HP torque and 1/4 mile times aren't that important ( although they are dammed impressive) and at what speed you hit the rev limiter is way down on the list. All you need to knowis you could successfully lose your license in any gear before hitting the rev limiter.

    Okay, let's do it this way then, when you accelerate hard, on what speed/speeds you are gearing up?

    I'm still breaking in mine...
    Are you people STuPid ? , why are,nt you hanging off every word that Kaj has posted. You guys shouldve relized that he is still "breaking" his bike in. He told us that back on his second post before he started waiting.

    Ok Lets do it this way,Kaj' how quick would the dealer give you a swap back to a sportsbike so you could go to a forum where they will answer all your questions? After its been "broken in" of course. Personally my aim with a new engine is usually to "RUN" it in not BREAK it.

    I don't think Australians use a standard English dictionary though

    I'll try to make my point clearer. I don't think it is very grown up to start nitpicking about grammar in these forums. Especially when there are many of us who do not speak English as our native language. And even the ones who do can sometimes make mistakes.

    And yes. In Finland there is no age limit on ownership, but we do have age limit for driving license.

    No, I have not! You are in a break-in period not a break-it period. If you use the rev limiter as a guide too often then..... BOOM and lots of big repair bills.

    As for shift speeds try this: 1st to 2nd; 20/25mph (30/40km/h). 2nd to 3rd; 30/35mph (50/55km/h). 3rd to 4th; 40/45mph (60/70km/h). 4th to 5th; +50mph (+80km/h). Personally, I do not shift into 5th until I am doing at least 55/60mph (90/100km/h).

    However, as I have now installed a Baron Tach, I try to shift between 2000 and 3000 rpm depending on traffic and terrain.

    Hope this clears up some questions about speeds. Cheers
