With my 15T front sprocket I get a good indication from the rev counter. In 6th gear, 4000rpm = 40 mph. etc 6000rpm = 60 mph. Actually it's a mile or two more but close enough to show me I'm in 6th.

I shift between 7 and 8k, and at 6th gear I top off at 10k rpm and max speed 96mph on the track straight away, down shifts I try to stay in the 6 to 8k range!

Too late a shift, and I will lose engine power after 8500rpm. Engine will cut completely if I gas it too much in 4th or 5th gear when it should be in 6th. Not fun on a track when that happens.

Just got the CB300F and took it easy the first couple of rides to get a feel. Third ride I spun it up into the 6-8k range and found it much livelier and fun. Nice change from the KLR650.
Was concerned about buzzy at higher RPM but Grip Buddies took care of any that was there. Very pleased so far.
