DT400E RPM question

Recommended Posts

Hello all

I am really enjoying my dt400e. I have a question in regards to the rpms the bike runs very strong but seems to fall flat around 6500 rpms is this common to the bike as its stock and I really don't intend on running it in the redline I just noticed the other day in 3rd gear I tried to redline it just to see if it would and it just falls flat at around 6500.  Just wandering

Thanks Robert

I think max power is produced at 5,500 rpm and torque at 5,000 rpm, so going beyond that is pretty pointless. It's a large capacity, two-stroke single so is never going to be a 'red-line screamer'.

Best change up early and ride the torque.
