Ive read thru the owners manual section on the min downshift speed, with all four being the same 15mph
the words dont make sense in english, I think the manual was written in Japanese and translated into english, and the wording on that table originally meant something else
when you are riding and you slow down you want to down shift as you are slowing down, so you are always in the right gear to speed up again if you need to
its only when you are stopping for sure, like a stop sign, that you can leave the bike in 5th gear, slow all the way down to about 20mph and then clickclickclickclick to 1st as you come to a stop.
For most bikes a good baseline is to shift up and down at 10, 20, 30, 40mph if you are just cruising.
