Thats exactly why I shift at redline, drops you back into your powerband.usdm420 said:even so, you dont want to shift where your HP peaks, this is a HUGE mistake made by many people.
when doing this, you drop your rpms BELOW the peak HP in the next gear which is what youwant to avoid...you should be able to shift right into, or JUST before your peak starts.
i, like ski, take it to redline...
No what you should be thinking about, is the power more after peak hp or before peak hp. Thats the only way to know what is better for your bike.Got2josh said:but when you shift AFTER peak power, the amount of power at reline is less than that at peak. If you shift at peak in that gear yes you're not at peak in the next gear, but at least you're GAINing power in the next gear instead of losing it in your current
