I would not hesitate going to 7500 with the proper cam and valve springs all day long

I think most people will tell you to keep it under 6000 for a long life expectancy, but many spin them to 6500 without issue. I am sure 7500 is doable, but I think the life expectancy is greatly diminished at that rpm.

I've had one to around 7k but not for any length of time.

Typically it stayed under 6,500
