Coming out of 1st is the only time I shift at 4000rmps. Everything else gets to 4200 or 4500 (sometimes 4700). I basically shift it like a VW Bug.
I have a 2015 V7 stone (I'm in the USA, so it is NOT an ii model). She only has 5.5k miles on her. I've always thought that she shook much more than she should at lower revs, and today I tried to keep the revs over 4k into work... so much smoother!
6th gear is really an overdrive
The old wisdom says that the Guzzi will protest more at lower rpm / high throttle setting combinations, more than a comparable 360 degree twin.The “shaking” of the engine, whilst pleasant in some respects to ones senses, is a physical manifestation of the torture that is being wrought upon the mechanicals within.
You lost me in the first sentence and got me back in the last.
Please tell me what you mean by that ?
When the output shaft is turning slower than the input shaft of the transmission. Any ratio that is less than 1 to 1, such as 1 to .80 for instance, is considered overdrive.John Henry
For instance at 3,000 engine rpm, your Cali 1400 might be around 100 kph, if the rear wheel was doing the same rpm, the bike would be doing around 350 kph.
