On some other bikes I've owned, the speed was limited by a couple things. Bikes have a Throttle Position Sensor and a Gear Position Sensor, and a speedometer. When all these send info to the ECU telling it that 186 is coming, or HP limit is reached in European bikes, these is an automatic ignition retard. There is not stumbling, cutoff, etc...just a smooth end to your speed increase.mikeydigital said:Isn't there a "good-guy" manufacturer limit of 300KPH (186MPH)? I think when speeds get that high, there's a fuel cutoff that kicks in and doesn't let you go faster. I'm also pretty sure that the regulator can be removed (for the times you want to get above 186).
I could so see some one at nasa watching the radars and scratching there a$$ at 3am and all of a sudden there is a blip on the radar and it is accelerating quickly so he watches for a second then calls up local athoritys. Meanwhile the biker makes it home okay loads gps info onto computer and sits back and admire his 200mph run down that empty stretch of freeway and knock knock on his door it's the police.wjbarton said:Like the guy before me said, the gauges are way off, my guess is +5mph. At times when I'm cruising around at what my gauge says is 100 I don't feel like I'm passing people as fast as 100mph should be passing them, and I don't think everyone's doing 85 in their hyundai's...
GPS it and hope no one's watching the blips...
In Canada, all bikes after a certain year, top out at 299kms, if the have the power. My 2000 CBR929RR hit that at 12300 rpm.I'm reposting this in the honda sportbikes thread just incase, so it is technically a repost. Its all good though... :cheers
I topped out my 929 on an empty open stretch of highway yesterday, and it hit 260kph (161mph) at 10500 rpm, and I am pretty sure that was maxed out in 6th... I thought it would get a little higher than that, as it should do about 280 kph (173mph).
I'm no squid, but I wanted to see how much speed I could get out of a mostly bone stock 929. I have a 2 bros slipon, stock gearing, and she has new tires on her... so no real HP modifications. I pretty much don't have to do it on this bike anyways, as I will not be able to ride past its limits on the street.
I had her maxed out for a very limited amount of time, so don't think I am a nut or anything
What is the average (real world) top speed of the 929's, and not the claimed numbers from honda?
