    redline 8,000rpm? Help?

    So I've noticed on watching videos that people odometers don't have a redline?

    Mine reads a readline starting 8,000 rpm to 10,000?

    I don't know why?

    I installed a k & n filter to the TB and reset the ECU( if I did it right). It's kinda strange I go to accelerate and the rpms rev up but my bike doesn't go any faster? Sorry I'm a noob at these things.

    Any ideas? Kinda need of help?

    I'll try and post pics/video soon to show

    Ecu need to read intake temp sensor.. should not be left out.. make sure kn filter is not rubbing throttle linkage ( hose clamp) you need to double check your work and puzzle it. May left out not been plug in.

    Not sure I under stand this, unless your clutch is slipping.
    Can you explain a little more what the problem is

    You nailed it! Clutch was smoked. No free play. Was on super tight. Adjusted both ends. Now we're back in business. Thanks for the replays appreciate all you input.

    Also will be putting the temp sensor into the filter. Should I rest ECU again when I do that?

    Sorry I can't answer that, not my thing.
    But I would suggest yes, although I thought the ECU reset itself by riding,
    Anyone else know the answer?

    Mine ran perfect with the ait sensor still in the box and open throttle body and you can reset it if you want or just go ride it'll adjust itself
