Interesting topic. I recently was reading about this, as I've always just did what the bike felt, but started seeing articles about how Harley's have issues due to most rider lugging the engine and running it too low. I assumed this was lower than what I ran, but started researching, and I tend to run around 2,500 RPM. The articles I read were telling me to run at 3,000 RPM, up to 4,000, as you're still no where near redline, and the power is much better.
I tried all of that, and while the bike certainly runs smoother, it FEELS like it's running too high. I've since given up and gone back to what feels right, and if something breaks, I'll just have to replace it.
Interested in what other people have to say.
