Do you get the vibe when you ride?

  1. My friend said he wished there was some sort of shift buzzer under the seat (instant reaction and it would feel good too) so when you hit max RPM then you'll know when to shift. Good for dragracing or roadracing. I shook my head in laughter, then I stumbled upon this website and umm, yeah, I think the main page description speaks for itself:

  2. The only vibe I get from my bike tells me it's time to synchronise my carbs....
     
  3. Max RPM/shift time should be felt/sensed by the simple fact that you are exiting your torque/horsepower-band. It's that "I really don't have any more to offer, boss" feeling you get.. learn to sense this and you will never hit redline, and you'll always have the farce with you :D

    Be sure to let up the throttle for a micro-second at the shift so you don't free-spin the engine into the redline.
