7000-8000 rpm

Since I have only owned V4 or Vtwins and this is my first parallel twin I ws wondering if I running it between 7 to 8 grand is hard on [email protected] 5000 to 5500 the engine is very buzy at 6000 to 6500 its better but the motor seems to come alive and smooth out around 7000 the bike is an 2011 with only 700 miles on it

You'll be fine as long as you keep it in 6th gear, but you'll be going about 95-105 mph.
