Post by nestor-nc29 » Wed Feb 01, 2012 7:28 pm

hi, i have a nc29 and have been looking at the specificions on the bike, it says 6 speed but mine only has 5 gears, i know this sounds like someone retarded or something but genuinly i counted all my gears from first and i only have 5? but yet the bike still hits 125-130 mph (indicated), and pulls like a train, anyone shine some light on this? its a 1990 cbr 400 nc29.

What does the graphic on the sprocket cover say? Does it have 1-N-2-3-4-5 or 1-N-2-3-4-5-6 stamped on it?
Conventional wisdom says to know your limits. To know your limits you need to find them first. Finding your limits generally involves getting in over your head and hoping you live long enough to benefit from the experience. That's the fun part.
