When to shift
 
New Kawasaki 2018 Vulcan vaquero owner which read the owners manual and am now confused about the shift points listed in the manual. They are:
1st to 2nd at 12 mph
2nd to 3rd at 19 mph
3rd to 4th at 25 mph
4th to 5th at 31 mph
5th to 6th at 38 mph

I find that if I shift this early, the motorcycle does not run smooth and hesitates. Could someone let me know what actual up shift speed points work well for them.

Thanks,
Jim
