The speedo stops at 189, so I am not sure. I have a video of the bike rolling to 188, but it was before all of the mods and without the NOS. More of a pucker since it was dark (I know it was stupid).

The first pass the dog and birds got in the way. The second pass the speedo said 185 and I let out. The GPS said 170 and that wasnt good enough. The last pass I stayed in it till the engine started to cut out. Im not sure if I was in 5 or 6th though. I was puckered and felt like I was running out of road. I was wearing Alan's small helmet and it was still shaking real bad. My vision was blurry as and I figured it was enough.

Close enough... all bikes will be off. Changing tire profile will change it again too. Speedometer is measured from the speed sensor.

On the busas it is an ignition block in 6th gear at a predetermined rpm approximating 186mph. So the TRE makes the bike think it is in 5th when in 6th. The other option is to jump the 6th gear sensor when removing the clutches(as I have seen on other national busa websites.)

Either way, that's fast and usually not a speed required.

I dont know my pucker speed. My bike only does 137 down hill WITH a tail wind. That wasnt enough to make me pucker at all.








*Warning: Do not attempt. Speed was tested on a closed course by unprofessionals.*
