What RPM are u shifting at

My gearing is -1/+1 and I'm shifting round 11k should I be shifting earlier or later.
? I'm wondering if I am on point with my shift point.

I set my shift light to come on @ 13k right @ the redline. I don't alway's shift at that point unless I'm runnin someone or really gettin it in.

500 RPM higher than wherever your peak power is at!! For example if your bike stops making power at 12k shift at 12,500 but thats just me.

I shift just before REDLINE but it's not only where you shift but how fast you can recover.
