top speed

i must admit, i've yet to test the top speed of my bike ('05 10r). i've only hit 181.

two reasons for this thread...1. what is the fastest you ever went on your bike? and 2. if you did reach the limit, how fast, at what rpm and was it bouncing off the rev limiter or stopped by a governor?

i think the gen 1 10rs aren't electronically limited (correct me if im wrong). what about gen 2 and 3? how about anyone with zx6, zx7 and zx14s?

One who trades essential liberty for temporary safety deserves neither.

I hit 189, but I don't have a speedohealer so maybe 173 or so. But at that point, I wasn't really worried about the rpms. I was too busy look at the road.

thats what my one friend said. he's hit his top speed many times, but said he doesnt have the nerve to look down at such speeds.

interesting. i just may have to test the top speed myself to see if the gen 1 10rs either bounce off the rev limiter or begin to struggle with more rpms available like in your 636 situation. so when are you going to test out your 1000cc top speed?

thats a very realistic readout with perhaps 1-2mph left.
