Shift Light?

Anyone find an inexpensive adjustable shift light? I don't have the dash for my race bike but I really just need to know to shift just before the rev limiter kicks in.


Thanks

Do these things have a rev limiter? Mine will scream if I let it.

yeah about 10,500 rpm. just remember the power goes down after 9800 and the rod bearings fail at 11,000

I once over did a downshift to pass on the freeway going about 70, and the thing was making a high pitch wail like a pekinese in heat. It was still pulling though but I never did that again. It must have been pretty close to 10.5.
It is 'willing to rev' as they say.
Thanks for the tip, Fog.
