Is there any way to keep the tachometer from flashing? It's very distracting
well, not sure.. I haven't messed with it, maybe it's just set too low? I've never redlined it or anything but does seem like it's flashing too early, guess I should read my manualThat's kind of what it's designed to do. To get your attention and shift. Hence the reason it's called a "shift indication". Why are you running the engine up that high and allowing it to flash so much? What is it set to?
Damn dude! You don't screw around, do you? ??? You're at 13,500 and thinking the shift light shouldn't be on yet? I'm not even sure I've been to 13,500. If I have I was ready to shift or hit the brakes anyway. I just shift when it begins to flash. The gauge cluster was one of the things I liked most about Kawasaki. Don't even have to look and you can get an idea of the rpm range where the bike is running. I find it useful because I often ride longer distances with ear buds playing music so I can't hardly hear the bike.Okay, so I checked it and it was set at 13,500 and fast flashing , I changed it to slow flashing .. maybe I was running it harder than I thought, it's the first liter bike I've owned that had to tach so high before it started pulling hard
