You got the tach,,use it,,
In the city use a bit more rpm and a little less low end torque.
It worked for me.
when i got it, 33 city, 42 hiway
now 38 city 49 hiway and I ride fast on the superslabs.
Your EFI Roadster is more efficiant above 3,000 rpms when
accelerating,,4,000 is even better.
When going for big speed shift around 5250 rpm, and shift fast,
Use that tach.
