Interesting. Is that for normal riding or is it minimum suggested speeds for the breaking in period?
That's some serious short shifting. That is nuts. Govt has to be involved. I would never ride like that.Shifting into 2nd at 1700 RPM, now you're at 1360 RPM
into 3rd at 2200 RPM, now you're at ~1800 RPM
into 4th at 2400 RPM, now you're at ~2100 RPM
into 5th at 2600 RPM, now you're at ~2300 RPM
into 6th at 2800 RPM, now you're at ~2600 RPM
That's using the gear ratios on the GSX-S, not numbers I made up.
Are you guys nuts? The engine should not be run this low. Bare minimum to avoid lugging it should be around 3000 RPM. I try to keep it at 4000 or higher so that I have a little bit of power.
This table was probably made up out of thin air by an intern.
This is the same table used also for GS500F and GSX650F (see user manuals for these two bikes).
Don't see the reason why they put the same table for three different type of bikes (different engine, gear box and clutch).
