Bike screaming, safe or not?


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, not sure whether this is the right place to post, admin please move my thread if its in the wrong section.

 

Have been riding for around 2 months so not experienced at all, want to know when should I stop revving. My bike (daelim roadwin 125) basically screams at around 100km/h when I'm in the top gear, is it safe if I continue to let the bike scream? or when should I stop revving?

Any help is welcomed.

its not the speed you should take note of, or even the sound of the engine/exhaust. its the rpm as shown in your tachometer.

 

this is your dash?

if you're cruising, make sure the rpm goes at most 9000+ rpm just before the clearly indicated redline of 10,000 rpm. touching the redline zone for a split second while you upshift is fine; cruising at that redline for extended open throttle is bad for engine.

It's true: it's more fun to ride a slow bike fast than to ride a fast bike slow. Admittedly, though... It is MOST fun to ride a fast bike fast!

Thank you mechwira. Because I have been taught to listen to the engine, so as long as my rpm does not hit the red lines is should be fine right?

 

put it this way.

 

once you ride your bike a lot, you will instinctively know by its engine sound roughly where you are at the rpm range and when its time to upshift. listening to this sound is better than looking at the dash because obviously you dont want your eyes off the road. so in this sense yes you should go by sound.

 

but the whole point of listening to the sound in the first place is to make sure you're not revving into the redline. the sound is your indicator of your current rpm, not the final point itself.

 

yes, technically you're fine so long you dont redline.
