2012 Stock Gearing?
I bought a new 2012 250r. Riding it home, I noticed shifting into 6th relatively quickly and at 30 mph it was turning 4,500 rpm's in 6th? I took it to 9,000 rpm's and that was 60 mph IN 6TH GEAR, then I slowed back down??? It's brand new, has 17 miles on it with no modifications? I insured I was in 6th gear (this is my 20th motorcycle in the last 43 years). Any ideas? Also the fuel gauge is totally inop. I filled the tank and it still reads empty. I suppose because it's new that a wire is disconnected. I can take it back to the dealer, but if any of you know a simple thing to look at I'll do that first. There appears to be a wire bundle coming out from under the instrument panel, nothing seems out of the ordinary, maybe there's a disconnected wire under the tank? Anybody ever have this problem? Thanks in advance! I've always wanted one of these and am glad I bought it.
