I'm looking into purchasing a 1986 Honda Rebel 250 for my first beginner bike. I was wondering if there is a way to add a gear indicator? I thought I saw a topic about this but cant seem to find it. Thanks.
Those speedo marks are the maximum speed for each gear. Like Guba said, wind it out if you need to, but I wouldn't hit those marks regularly, don't think my hearing would like it!I am finding that I dont even get close to the marks on the speedo, before shifting. I feel that the bike is just screaming, usually shifting out of first by about 20-25 Km/h ie 10-15 MPH, and out of 2nd around 40-50 km/h ie 25-30 MPH. Just curious if I might want to wind it out a little bit more, or If I am happy shifting where I am, leave it as is for increased reliability? Used to riding a 1000CC v twin.
