They all should redline around 7k rpms when cold. That is to protect the motor until it is peak operating temperature

That what happened to me!!! I hit the 7000rpm rev limiter after riding for a good 15 minutes (highway). I was rather cool that morning too. (40's) I thought I blew something up when it started to bounce off the limiter, lol. I was kinda scared. Thank god its supposed to happen :moped:

it's normal when cold. Some of us don't hit the limiter until 9.6

The limiter shouldn't be 7k after 15 minutes of riding, IMHO.

Oh man - 10,2000 is up there. Is the motor still making any power at 10,200???

I'm sure there's a bit of exaggeration as it feels like 15 minutes when it is most likely only 5

Mines still making power with SE2 cams and the short velocity stacks up to 9800. I turned the rev limiter up to keep from having to shift into 5th right before the end of 1/4 mile....

How much boost are you running? Did you put in different cams? The reason I am asking is I'm going to do a complete makeover on my 06 nightrod and want to increase the motor to 200/135ish hp/tq...

hmm maybe 10 minutes. The oil was only @ 100*. When its warm (150* to 190*) it revs nicely to 9000rpm. This only happened to me one time where I hit the limiter @ 7000rpm
