What's more important, gear indicator or RPM monitor?
I am planning to buy both, but would like to get some input on what you guys think it's more important. A gear indicator or RPM monitor?
Me, I think maybe RPM monitor because I heard it's important for the first 800-1000 miles that you properly break-in the engine and tranny properly to maximize the life of your motorcycle. I heard you have to keep it under 4000-5000 RPMs for the first several hundred miles to wear it down right. Also, you can properly monitor idling to make sure it's in the right range. I read that with the Rebels you shift based on speed, but overall when it comes to motorcycle you are more supposed to shift based on RPM for engine/tranny health.
Would really like you guys' inputs on which you think it's more important.
