Going up to the redline in every gear, every time you rev the motor would be a bad thing.... sustained time at the redline (more than a few seconds) is also bad news in the long run. Hitting the rev limiter before the motor is all the way warmed up is a good way to get it to fail earlier than it might, as well.

As you are in the UK, I cannot tell you if grinding off part of the mirror stay is legal. If the mirror still works, and doesn't become loose because of it, I can't think of why it would be, though.

Welcome, by the way, and:

Search the forum for "bird cage delete". You can install another type stay that replaces the cage version.

these bikes are designed to be run hard. If you're taking it to redline every shift I have two things to say.

1. No... probably not gonna hurt the bike as long as you're doing the maintenance and it's running well.

2. You shouldn't be doing that every time you pull away from a stop light. The street isn't a race track. :bigthumb:
