Critter· Retired twice: Navy and as a govt contractor
I had a VStar 650 at one point. I put a tach on it I first got it. I don't remember now if it was 65 or 70 that the bike was doing 5k on the tach. I think it was 70. Everyone says it won't hurt the bike to run those rpm's but I didn't like it either and went to a bigger bike.
