well ive seen a corrected speedo at 134 with my speedohealer. i might not ever top it out. i like tight corners more than straightaways. who knows, i plan on drag racing it at skyview drags in Owego NY next summer.

Yesterday i got the speedo to get a 137 and it felt as if the bike dropped off. the reading hovered at 135 - 137 for about .5 mile and i got outta it. I weigh about 220 with gear. I have not had any corrections to the speedo and i know it is being a little generious.


sounds like you shifted too early. you should get about 108 outta her at the limiter in 3rd. I was in 5th when i hit 134 (corrected). she's got more. Before i got the speedohealer my speedometer was optimistic by about +11%. It was dead on until a couple of weeks ago when i switched out my front sprocket to a 15 tooth. But that has only changed my speedo +3% since then. :leghump

kdk..............how much did the 15 help in short blasts? I hit 132mph(indicated) and i think i was in forth gear maybe fifth.
the smaller sprocked helped a lot for in town riding and two up riding. I origanlly planned on dragracing next summer but i might have to have a tumor removed from my hip joint and that might mess up my riding for next year.

Not that it's at par with what some of you guys are hitting, but I did 125 indicated for the first time last weekend. The fastest I've ever gone, and it was great.
Congrats!!!! at least our bikes are very stable at high speeds. i like to open her up every now and then. Im not a squid though and i do wear all of my gear.

Yes, I hit an indicated 155. No telling what the actual speed is given speedometer error, but it was fun. This was in 6th gear at 6K' elevation too, with a tailwind and maybe a slight uphill.

i bet your real speed was about 142. from my experiance and what ive read of other's, the bike is off about 10-11% +. thats pretty freakin fast!!


was that a topout at redline or did it start to run out of steam? i havent read anyone bouncing off the rev limiter in 6th yet. i cant test it on my bike cause my hips messed up and i have put away my bike stuff for the winter.

if that is the case, dropping down the front sprocket like mine might lead to a higher top speed??!! Course wouldnt matter past 12500 rpms, cause that is supposed to be peak HP.

Thanks for the info.
