R.P.M. Red - line

Guys,


Picked up my new Street 750 yesterday - lovely bike. Am well pleased.


It has the new tacho / gear position indicator in the speedo which I guess is useful.


I must admit I am used to watching a needle go round a dial in the tacho and a clear 'red - area' when you near the designed limit.


I have also read on here that there is a rev limiter on the bike.


So I have 2 x questions to ask:


1. Does anyone know at what r.p.m. the rev limiter kicks in.
2. Does anyone know what the R.P.M. red - line starts at?


Thanks guys.

I've seen reports that say 7500 rpm and 8000 rpm for the rev limiter, I have seen the tach I installed read about 7800 rpm. Not exactly the answer your looking for but an approximation.

Around 8k rpms- have the same XG750, 2017 model with tacho/gear indicator

hmmm- there is no "red line"- only hard cut off. Unfortunately it's the way the fuel injection works in opposite to the old, good carburetor
