Well,

As most of you know my Tachometer is screwed up on my bike. It doesn't go past 1900 RPM. It was like this when I bought the bike so heres my question:

On a 1990 Kawasaki Ninja 600R what are the max speed at each gear? Like whats the top speed in 3rd gear at redline? I am just trying to see if I am changing gears too late and am hitting close to redline everyshift.

Thanks In Advance,

Sam

If you have a service manual that includes your transmission gearing, I can run a spreadsheet for you. I will also need your sprocket sizes and rear tire and rim sizes. I did this for my Ninja 250, so I would just need to type in the new numbers for you.
