  • What engine speed (rpms) should I shift my Ninja 250R?

    as above answer states.. but.. higher is not a problem.. once you have been riding awhile you will get use to accelerating quickly & then changing gears & dropping engine revs to where the bike is comfortable running.. the engine should be reving in the range where if you accelerate it will pull away at a reasonable rate.. or will pull away... show more
