is it safe to change gears at 7000 rpm even though this is running into the limiter or is it recommended that gears should be changed at not more than 6500 or 6750.

I find that shifting around 6000-6500 is optimal since the torque curve starts dropping off at 5000 or so... plus, if you don't watch the tach religiously, you will run into the rev limiter like a brick wall all the time!! very frustrating!!
