What is the correct speed of changing gears of Suzuki Gixxer?
There is no fix speed rule for changing gears as conditions are not always same, there may be more pay-load on bike, driving track (rough, smooth, wet, dry, incline, decline) may be different etc, so one himself needs to study how bike’s engine works in different conditions and should shift gears accordingly and it is also more convenient and safer than shifting gears every time looking down into speedometer. Some guidelines for shifting gears are:
• Always start the bike in first gear; first gear is used for moving off, maneuvering and for creeping slowly in traffic and at junctions.
• Second Gear is used for moving off down very steep hills, building up speed after moving away and driving at low speeds.
• Third Gear is used to build up speed and when you need more power for climbing hills. It also increases your control when going down steep hills and dealing with some bends.
• Fourth & fifth Gears are used for driving at higher speed, where there are no hazards to confront, it gives better fuel economy, and these are normally used on open roads when travelling constantly at higher speed.
