I don't have a 1800 or a manual for one. But I never look at the tack for shifting on any of my wing's. I do it purely by sound and. feel. and some days I feel sporty and other days im laid back and shift lower rpm. I have only ridden a 1800 a cpl times but it had tons of power down low so it probly really doesn’t matter. In my mind it would be harder on an engine to run at lower rpm than higher rpm. to a point
