Failing to properly observe the
road ahead increases the chance
of an accident. Do not concen-
trate on the shift-up indicator by
taking your eyes off the road, ob-
serve using peripheral vision.
When shifting down to a lower
gear, do not shift at such a high
speed that the engine r/min (rpm)
jumps excessively. Not only can
this cause engine damage, but
the rear wheel may skid and
cause an accident. Downshifting
should be done below 5 000 r/min
(rpm) for each gear.
Pushing and holding the lower but-
ton advances the shift–up engine
The data are maintained even if the
battery is disconnected.
Engine r/min (rpm) should not be
allowed to enter the red zone; op-
eration in the red zone will over-
stress the engine and may cause
serious engine damage.
