Default What RPMs do you ride at with 106?

Hey Guy's I'm coming from a 103 Harley motor and noticed this Victory 106 really sings from 3500-6500. I currently have the Lloyds timing wheel, PCV, Big Honkers and Lloyds AF and cannot believe how much pull it has in the high rpms. My Harley was pretty much dead after 5000...this just keeps going. Right now i'm cruzing on the freeway around 3200 rpm in 5 gear...is this to high? Not used to this new motor coming from HD.

Was planning on Cams, but I think I'll kill myself LOL

Default Above 75mph shift into sixth gear

I personally do not shift into sixth usually until I hit 75mph or above. So usually cruising around 3000rpms at around 80mph. These bikes seem happiest above 3000rpm. Though the timing wheel does make it have much more torque below 3000rpm than stock, so yes I do ride below 3000 rpms when taking it easy around town..... Do love going through tunnels with the glass pack muffler and in lower gear, kind of like music!

Never below 2500 RPM. When working tight twisties, the tach reads 3500 to 4500 +/- a bit. Don't be hesitant to rev your engine, the 106 loves it.

My old man used to say that the right way to run a Detroit Diesel is to climb up to the cab, open the door wide, stick your hand into the jam and then slam it, then slam it one more time so there's no mistaking the pain for accidental. Now you're ready to drive it likes it wants to be driven.

Same thing with a 106 but no door.

Get the cams. You know you want to.
