Just checking with the rest of you on something. Not sure if this is just the nature of the bike but when I am pulling away or even just give some throttle between 3000 - 6000 rpm the bike just seems to vibrate and the engine seems like it's working hard and the exhaust gets throaty.

This normal?

Mine does that if I've been lazy with the gears, and was in a higher gear than I should be. My IL4 done the same but I suppose it's more pronounced on a twin.

Yeah.. but at highway speed and pulling away at 5000 rpm just seems a bit strange for it to feel like it's bogging down and get strong vibrations.

That's correct. In fact, my rpm never go below 4500 once I'm out of my subdivision, and I tend to cruise in the 5000 range. higher if I want to be able to accelerate aggressively.

Yeah, mine USED to be fine after about 4700 rpm but then it just started acting weird between that and 6000. I dunno... Maybe I'm just insane! Seems likes something is off.

I cruise around 5k. Was tearing it up with a Hayabusa rider today and was mostly around 6k and above, but I can't say I was "cruising."

For what it's worth.

Oh yeah, Hayabusas can't keep up in the curves. So sad... >:)

Soooo....is that the "normal" cruising range? Seems a bit high....even if the redline is 10.5. ? Is this what most of you cruise at?
I cruise at 6000. It leaves me sufficient rev range to get me clear of any trouble such as overtaking. Rule of thumb is to ride 30km faster than those around you such as car drivers. If traffic is at standstill the 30km is slow enough to be able to stop when cutting through.
Each rider enjoys their own pace where they are comfortable. Many folk are at the 4500 to 5500 rpm range.

it's longer wheel base offers more stability in the turn though. It just can't be thrown around too easy like a supersport
