Anyone know if the XL600Rs (1984) had a rev limiter? Since I don't have a tach, I'm wondering if there's something to keep me from overrevving.

Before I got a cam, I would shift if its out of power on top. After I got a cam, I hi the rev limiter every once in a while in first or second because its still pulling. For your '84, I would guess that if it has a points/condenser setup instead of a black box for ignition, then there is no rev limiter.

Whew, thanks! I was a bit worried.

I'm thinking I'll get a vapor gauge setup eventually. But for now I'll go by ear.
