Raining cats and dogs, ordered winter tires last week and they're not here yet...should be fun today!!
14,000 on the stock tires, probably 6k left in them, but I don't really trust the rear in the wet.
Gonna put on some BT45's for the winter, then finish off the stocks in the spring. Thinking about trying the radials that come on the WR250R for next summer.
I think you're looking wrong at the graph. The right lines show the shift points, the left lines (which all have the same colours as the right ones)) show where you will get after you shifted up.
Imagine pinning the bike in second (yellow line) thus around 9800 rpm, the rpm will drop to 7300iesh
Im only not sure about the 1st gear. Seems like a really big RPM drop to me.
