There really is no "best time" other than what suits your style. The owner's manual has a suggested shifting chart but these engines were made to scream so anything short of red line is not going to hurt them....

I agree and, yeah, it does take some getting used to! When I switched out the stock can for a shorty pipe and then started it up in the garage, it scared me a little. LOL

P.S. Make sure you wear earplugs!

Just bopping around town, I shift at 4 or 5K. Accelerating at a highway on-ramp, well, that's a different story.
