Observations While I De-PMS'ed Today
Noticed a few things while I got rid of some PMS in balmy 28 degree Pennsatucky. I may be lugging my bike. Here is why I think that.
It is ever so happy 3400-4200 RPM, 45-60ish MPH, 3rd gear, in the back roads. Gas mileage ran steady 42 which is good for me so far, and the bike seemed really happy there, and did everything I asked it to do.
Also 4200-5400ish RPM, 60/80ish MPH, 4th gear, highway, it again was just really happy also. When should I use 5th gear. Honestly it seems I get better mileage running in the 4000-6000 RPM range.
Is this right?
