On your bike? Hmm, must be a 250 or a 500. When I wound out 1st on my old cbr600, I shifted into 2nd at 72

We already came to the conclusion we're both right; the injectors shut off at 0 throttle in some cars but not all.

other than that dont over rev the motor when you dont have to for best milage.... and do your best to not grind if your syncros are damged try to do your best to find the sweet spot to shift to not grind or just try to skip that gear to prevent any more grinding and metal debri to be shreaded into the tranny case...
This is a requirement in the UK, you will FAIL YOUR DRIVERS TEST if you don't do this during the DMV test.
