Gear Chart

Hi there,
i am looking for a gear chart. I mean a chart with the gears 1-6 and the speed in kmh or mph in one axis and the engine speed in rpm in the other axis. Does anyone know a torque chart?
I found the shifting thread, but that is not my question. I guess what rpm the engine takes in the 5th and 6th gear at 100 kmh and at maxium speed.

I found nothing in the net............

One may ride yestraday I think I could use a 7th gear

Greetings from Hamburg


For example............

Closest thing I've seen to what you're asking is a Dyno chart, which is here:
https://www.cycleworld.com/2018-honda-rebel-500-dyno

That said, the engine revs surprisingly high so that 6th gear can handle quite a lot.

I shift into 7th gear all the time, just never seems to engage. My car has a 6 speed manual, it doesn't seem to need a taller gear like the Rebel does. Apologies for going off topic.

This is actually a common "mistake" people make. Thinking that the gear box on the bike is equivalent to the gear box of a car. And it's not wrong, technically, but have you ever thought about the difference in the rpms between a car and a bike?
A bike will always be driving with a higher rpm for it's gears than a car will.
I was doing the same thing when driving with my instructor, to get the license for bikes, and he told me to ignore what I knew about gearing in terms of car riding, as it's perfectly normal for bikes to ride it's gear at a higher rpm.

I Think so too. The engines of cars do turn slower rpms then the engines of motorbikes.
The thing I want to know is: what rpm does the cmx 500 engine run at 100 kmh and at maxium speed in the 6th or 5th gear?
Another new question: is there a limiter to the rpms?
Thank you for your patience with my questions.

So, I asked Honda UK what the bike speed is for each gear per 1000 revs. I'd like to know that to understand the bike better. I also asked what was the rev limit. I have just been told that Honda UK does not have that information! What?!!! Must be a closely guarded secret. (I suppose only Google knows!) 😦

I'm told there IS a rev limiter, I don't know when it kicks in but it IS somewhere above 85mph
