alot of the variance has to do with altitude as one may have 163 and the other 185 air temp will also contribute ive had mint to 176 mph cooler day and 2200m above sea level

my '02 954 was dyno'ed at going 172-174mph. Thats with a micron slip-on, and the flapper valve removed from the air-box. you lose some lower end but increase your upper end. i have 24k on it now and it still goes as fast as it did with 2k.

and dont forget guys, there always a 10% fault in the speedo. you will show less than you are going. so says the cop that clocked me, then the dyno.

Actually the speedo is 10% +or- faster then what you are going. If it shows 180 you may only be going 162....

171 indicated, MAYBE could have done a bit more but not likely...
and then my friend on the gix1 passed me like I was parked.

needless to say, I'm switching to a gix1 next month. :D
The 954 is a beefed up 900, I would hope a 1k would have a little more.

The altitude can make a huge difference. My stock 03 954 sucked at 8000-
10000 feet in Colorado. Back home in MN the best I have done is 165 mph
indicated. Slight tailwind. There was still a little acceleration left but I had
to back off because of farmers.

I have a 2002 and got it up to 163 quick and still pulling hard, stock sprockets, should go 175-180
My friend had my 2003 954 up to 163 mph indicated. The mounted GPS, Garmin 60c, with a good signal indicated a top speed of 158 mph . He thought it had a little more to go but not much. fully stock except air duct snorkels removed and exhaust cone cut off. Sound about right?
