What's up guys I have a quick noob question.. The other day I was getting on it pretty good an went to shift from 2nd to 3rd at about 11,500 RPM and idk why but for some reason it didn't shift (probably user error) and when I went to get back on the throttle it went way into the red zone.. I quickly let off an shifted when I noticed an it seems to be ok.. How bad is this on the bike? Anything I should worry about?

It's no major issue as long as the bike is warmed up and you don't do it all the time. The rev limiter will kick in and prevent you from over revving it too far.

Ok good.. I always warm my bike up to operating temperature before I start getting on it too much an It never made it all the way to the rev limiter.. So hopefully all is good :)

Rev limiter cuts spark when accelerating at 12500. It can't stop mechanical over-revving / money shifting.

Best place to shift :) lol. >:D

Yeah unless the bike was cold, and for whatever reason you decided to see how long the bike could run at max.. nothing to worry about...

Bike and car rev limit's are set below failure. Well should be. =/

If the bike produces peak HP and torque at 10750 RPM, why push it any higher?
