I can do 55mph sitting upright and 60-61 tucked and 65 drafting.

Thanks for the heads up about high beams. I'll probably cancel that then. What about the hid? Worth it?

no real replies yet.

Are you in Beaumont ?

A lot off the speeds are effected by wind and road grade.....Lol

I've seen 69 drafting, wife says she saw 70 w/o drafting, she's 1/2 my weight and not nearly as broad

Yeah I am in Beaumont, I've heard the motor doesn't really reach full hp till 300 miles or so and it's currently at 56. Definitely needs just a little bit more power and possibly some gearing to make it a little better.

Don't take this the wrong way but I though you were a little more than that. I'm like 190 but trying to do a weight reduction mod.

I just got a call from hard racing and some stuff is back ordered.

Yeah generally weight isn't one, wind resistance is going to be the biggest factor. Granted though if you weigh less you are probably more aerodynamic. Anyone notice a high speed with a fender eliminator?

My wife was the one that wanted to get rid of the stock fender as soon as possible. I didn't mind at all.

Anyone do spools or axle/frame sliders?
