Your motorcycle transmission has 5 forward
gears in a one-down, four-up shift pattern.
If you put the motorcycle in gear with the
side stand down, the engine will shut off.
Recommended Shift Points
From 1st to 2nd 12 mph (20 km/h)
From 2nd to 3rd 19 mph (30 km/h)
From 3rd to 4th 25 mph (40 km/h)
From 4th to 5th 31 mph (50 km/h)
From 5th to 4th 28 mph (45 km/h)
From 4th to 3rd 22 mph (35 km/h)
Improper shifting can damage the engine,
transmission, and drive train. Also, coasting or
towing the motorcycle for long distances with
the engine off can damage the transmission.
