....What is average speed to RPM ratio?
....what I should be looking for in each gear
..... just looking for a few guidelines so I can understand when best to change gears
The stock bike has 14/45 gearing (14 tooth front & 45 tooth rear sprockets).
With this set up rpms run kind of high and you will run thru the gears pretty quick, especially in 1st & 2nd. Normal shifting with conservative riding (i.e. around town, with traffic light)
should be done between 6-7k rpms, sometimes even lower around 5.5k. When needing to obtain max speed quicker (i.e. entering the freeway)
shifts between 8 and 11k are normal.
