Back in the day, (love starting a paragraph with that phrase) lots of smaller bikes did not have Tachs on 'em. some of 'em had hash markes on the speedo which would indicate maximum speed in each gear. One hash mark around 10 MPH for first, two around 20 or so for second etc. RE does not do that nor do we have a tach. I checked the manual but it does not give any refrence to maximum speed in each gear. Has anyone ever seen any documentation from the factory regarding this?Second question has anyone ever seen a peak HP/Torque curve chart for these engines?-Q
The ECU is programmed to cut off fuel supply if the bike reaches a MAXIMUM RPM of 5500.
I'm pretty sure they consider 5200 rpm to be maximum rpm on the UCE.
My manual says the maximum performance is at 5250 rpm, so I think the red zone starts at 5500.
According Geardata 2.11 here the MaxRevs in km/h for the G5:17 sprockets (original)1. 472. 713. 894. 1125. 13618 sprockets (optinal from c5)1. 492. 753. 954. 1195. 144Since mine ran only 1000 km no contact to the limiter (yet )The problem I am facing now is: how fast am I? The Speedo allows only rough estimates.
Singhg5I was just about to post the same question, THX I apreciate the upshift data, but I am looking for the maximum RPM in each gear. I do not really have an ear for this single and with no tach I don't know where I am in the power curve.ICEI did find dyna charts, THX, http://www.enfieldmotorcycles.com/forum/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=6995.0;attach=6418;imageREPozer,As was posted the manual does not answer my question, it just gives the maximum but know way to tell when you hit it!THX all for the replies. Are the Gear Ratio's the same for the G5 and C5? I can do some math and get my answers if they are.

Sounds like the BMW crowd is moving into the neighborhood.
Hmm, they seem kinda silly.
the bikes birthday is the day it rolled off the line and NOT the day you bought it. I can't tell you how many times I've had people get that wrong
And you need your horoscope and your bikes. Don't be foolish, the bikes birthday is the day it rolled off the line and NOT the day you bought it. I can't tell you how many times I've had people get that wrong!Scott
I went online to search for Gear Calculators. I found several that are not worth a darn, but this one looked pretty good. The creator allows you to enter data for Bikes that he did not list. You can also change the data to do "what ifs".The entire site seems to be down except for this one page, so I don't know how long it will last. But I entered the data for the C5 as I know it. If you click the drop down menu at the top left Royal Enfield is the last bike on the list.Numbers calculated at this website are spot on closer to yours than mine. http://woodsware.aciwebs.com/gears/gears.asp So I guess my question has been answered and I know where the tick marks go...
".....I went to this site that you have posted in the link. Saw the data you had entered for C5 and it also showed the table of RPMs and speed etc. Was interesting...." Agreed. And reassuring to discover that I habitually ride well within the most efficient torque range, even when I think I've been pushing it a bit..! One possible exception was when for no reason other than brain fade-out I changed down when I meant to change up!
