In this case, rev limiter doesn't matter. It can't limit RPM in this scenario.

I did the same thing, trying to keep my wife from out doing me on her shadow. I wound out 2nd to about 70 and stomped it down to 1st, the Goodyear was squalling. That was probably about 5-6000 miles ago, no harm done. The 1300 is a tough one.

I have ridden it almost 600 miles without a problem so I think if this had caused damage to the motor it would have showed up by now.

Its for sure not down on power either! LOL

I raced my buddy the other night and won. I have raced him a few times in the past and I beat him by about the same amount as I always do.
Also she will light the rear tire up on a hard launch still if you get to aggressive with the clutch. LOL

Yes she will!

Glad you didn’t break anything.
