On the track, being able to over rev is a plus...donniej said:I find if you're running up high enough to hit the rev limiter then you're losing power. The SV makes peak power I guess 500-1K RPM's before the limiter. Hence upping the rev limiter probably wouldn't get you any better performance.
Being able to over rev let you stay in your gear instead of upshifting just before you brake for a curve and then dowshifting to get out of the curve.donniej said:Why? I'm not trying to heckle you, I'm just curious.
When I hit the rev limiter I just let off the gas a little and power shift off it...
on the track you go faster if using all of revs even tough power curve is falling down after pik power.when you upshift it puts you at higher point on curve.over rev is very important.toobrokeforthat said:How does overrevving help? when downshifting it keeps the rpm's higher and in a bigger part of the powerband? As donnie said after a certain rpm you begin losing power so i dont see how this helps.
the first time was right after I switched to GP shifting, I had 45k or so miles on my SV at the time, I accidently shifted to 1st instead of 3rd but I was easing off the throttle and was able to react quickly and get the clutch pulled back in, I prolly only hit 14k± momentarily, the tach needle was pointed at the water temp lighttoobrokeforthat said:How does overrevving help? when downshifting it keeps the rpm's higher and in a bigger part of the powerband?

RandyO guess i shouldntve been so nervous the times i hit 12k lol
what is most likely to happen, float a valve thru a piston? bend a valve stem? throw a rod ? any of the above ?TWF said:you will not blow motor by over reving it on upshifts.you may on downshift.
you can bounce on rev limiter all day alone.
