That seems a bit high for a vulcan. Mine will go out to about 5200-5300....

wow...wish mine would shift that high :)
Disconnect your batter for an hour, reconnect it, start the car and go run it hard and it probably will shift higher. :) That makes the adaptive tranny forget what it's learned. If you drive it hard and ride the gears out all the time, it'll be more willing to do it, if you don't, it won't. ;)

Isn't Vulcan redline 5250 RPM or something?(can't remember)
Are you sure you're hitting 5900? I wouldn't keep doing it if you are. Sure the Vulcan is tough, but it won't last long up there.
I can take it up to about 5300 at most, but I don't try to go that high too often. That's what the SHO's for--though I'm always scared of breaking something else when I do.

Disconnect the battery and drive it like a manual, shift it where you want it to shift (you dont have to race the crap out of it, you can slowly accelerate to a high rpm). Then put it in drive and hammer it a few times...I've gotten the best results that way so far.

As for shifts my care usually shifts around 5700rpms, but if i hammer it on some days (good weather) It'll rev out to 6200, I've even had a few 6,700 rpm shifts. I've got a couple video clips of the 6200rpm shifts, I have yet to catch the 6700rpm fun tho.... This is all on my duratec...

I had a '93 Vulcan (no tach) and my grandma has a 98 vulcan... Hers usually shifts in the mid 5,000 range.....its a AX4N. Maybe the shift points are a tad different between the AX4S, AXOD, and AX4N? If I remember right the AX4N had a revised piston which helped shifts.....even tho In my opinion is still flakey (which is why my new boost valve is in the mail :) )
