its not about shifting where it stops making power, the idea is to shift while its STILL making power, but at a point where you fall into the right spot in second gear where power has started to build. Like I was saying, theres a calculater for figuring out where to shift in each gear based on gear ratio, power and torque curve and the optimum rpm will be slightly different in each gear but if you average them all together to just pick a safe rpm to remember for a stock 1st gen with no mods the magic number is 10300Every bike will be slightly different depending power mods you have done. Exhuast, air filters,and so on. the best way to know is to simply dyno the bike and see where it stops making power. Preturbo my bike was making power up to 10,800rpms.
If you are not at full throttle in first gear, does not matter where you shift at.. you are already behind.. Dont care who or what you are... that first 300' is EVERYTHING...Once in second being able to go to full throttle
