95 RF 900 - Dead and Gone
96 ZX-11 - Blown up (Should have done the oil mod)
95 GSXR 750 - long gone
92 VFR 750 - Wrecked by "good friend"






I remember as a kid looking at the speedometer and thinking wow that bike does 180. It was a Ninja 900 (think top gun) which would be lucky to get 140 - 150 I think.

seems plausible, he linked an '04GSXR600 going nearly 170 w/ a few mods

http://www.superstreetbike.com/custo...d/viewall.html

"Brock Davidson of Brock's Performance Products supplied us with his own custom map for the PCIII, and we were amazed to see 118 hp on the dyno at KWS Motorsports in Charleston, South Carolina, after making these simple, bolt-on mods. You read that correctly--the Brock's exhaust, a PCIII with a custom map and a tank of VP-U4 race fuel made more than 118 hp on the Dynojet 250, an increase of almost 16 hp over stock. With all this extra power in our pockets we returned to Maxton for the next meet to go after even more records. With Chronan in the saddle again (and the fairings back on) we got a new ultimate fastest speed of 168.092 mph. Final gearing for this setup required raising the front sprocket to 17 teeth while the rear ran a 43-tooth ring. Remember, the head had still never been off the bike at this point--chalk up another eight mph for simple bolt-on parts."



said his cop buddy radared him at 160-170

Believe it or not I topped my completely stock 09 R6 (except double bubble) at 175mph coming from the lone star rally on 45 two years ago. I weighed about 185 at the time.

This was the speed shown from my speedometer. I was only able to reach that speed on the long straight on 45 heading from Galveston.

That's indicated...not real speed. Bc of tire dimensions (smaller circumference while turning) they can't get the speed exactly right. So I believe the common margin is 11%, as in take 11% from 175 and thats closer to your real speed.

Before I had my double bubble I topped my bike at 156mph. After I got the double bubble I reached 164mph. I still didn't reach 175 on my speedo until I was on straight flat road. Most of the highways in my area are long and wavy. Not ideal for top speed.

Why? You can stand behind a standard wind screen.

My fat needs a double bubble. Maybe triple.
