You can't. The bike isn't limited to 189, the gauge is. The bike continues to gain speed, the speedo just won't register it

And you need to factor in speedometer error... Just because it says you are going 189 mph doesn't mean you are actually going that fast.

Get a speedo healer, program in an appropriate correction factor, and then run it again...
