Does it take into account ambient temperature and sprocket wear? ;D
Any other Enfields in New England?

Ambient temperature is important, but don't forget the moon phase and star position.

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!

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.

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. 

Sounds like the BMW crowd is moving into the neighborhood.

Ernie:  RE is metamorphosing into A B  M   W   ;D   Keep the calculator handy.

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!   :o

That my new friends was exactly the reason that I wanted to go through the excercise.  I want to ride in the most efficient power range.  Particulary when I have the Sidecar on.
