Default What RPM does rev limiter kick in?

Had it kick in in 1st gear the other day but i failed to notice what RPM's I was at.

It kind of took me by surprise.

Just want to know the sweet spot to shift

right but it will start retarding the timing and using less fuel up there to prepare for the limiter, which is why you usually move it to 6500ish
