I have been lead to believe the GPS units are pretty accurate, did you see the link I posted? The guys bike is modded pretty good, I'd believe it.

As to "Harder than most think and Hurt Ego's" count me in that group. We ran 181MPH at the Mile last October. Fast enough on a STREETBIKE to eclipse about 60% of the field, but I still had my eyes on that Red cap.
I started with a bone stock Busa and added the following PAIR valve block offs and valve removal, Brocks street Meg, Small airbox Mod, K&N filter, Synthetic oil, Power Commander, Brock's rear adjustable lowering links, GenMar bar riser to lower the front, and I weigh about 115 geared up. All in all a pretty good combination yet as I said 187 in testing and 181 at the Mile. So it's not just a show up on a stock Busa and run 200 thing.
Any other questions?

yea i got another question. how do yall stop? regular brakes? how long does it take to slow down from 200? and your chain is movin super fast too. and bearings. i would check and double check my before every run. 200 is too fast to have a little mistake like a loose bolt

I'm not saying the bike didn't go 200mph. 99% of the time a GPS is true but what I'm saying is him claiming it will do it in 1-mile (or a little after) is a stretch. That's the part that needs to be at a sanctioned event, that he can accelerate 0-1 mile and run 200....

Yes, safety wire on the drain plug, oil filter, axle pinch bolts, cotter pin in the rear axle and full leathers/dot helmet...Also have to have a dead man switch w/ lanyard and they will test it to see if it works.

www.texasmile.com

Check there for all the rules and info.... Its a good time for sure, even if you're just spectating....

Well, its "supposed" to be done by the rules but they haven't been enforcing it.... Either use a K&N filter that has the nut w/hole welded on the end of it or use a hose clamp around your oem filter and safety wire around the clamp. Not sure if they are gonna check it in March or not but I would do it just to be safe..... Ask Karl about it.
