I don't really take my ED past 4500rpm.. doesn't seem to be any point, all it does it make more noise (although it does sound good).

Rev limit is something like 6200.
I agree with fnp though, don't even bother taking it that high.

Your motor makes less power over about 5k. I think my XR makes power to 5200.

A Windsor is not a Honda engine.. it doesn't need to have its tits revved off to make a bit of power.. nice unstressed lazy relaxed motor, and thats the way it should be anyway.
