Sorry if this is a ridiculous topic, as maybe it can't be done, or maybe it's been done to death... but I'm a Ninja noob as I should be picking my new 10 up in a couple of hours.

Just wondering has anyone managed to have it break the 200 mph mark and how? I mean what's the simplest way anyone has managed it?

Yeah I did 200.2mph on motor on my zx10r but I had significant weight reduction and a built motor. I'm going to see how fast my stock motor can go though here pretty soon!!!

I was making 180hp on motor with 90!!! FT lbs and 220 on nitrous but never did a top end run with the nitrous. thats on pump gas, race gas put me at 186 and 227on spray

My buddy has a busa punched out to 1500cc set up for the standing mile.
He weighs around 200 and he has just broken 208.mph
If he was a smaller guy he could tuck in better.
His weight is also slowing him.
Its possible that if he had a longer run than 1 mile he night be able to do beta, I dunno.
So on I 10 it would prolly require a power adder like turbo or nitrous

stock gearing on a 04-05 is 186mph
I think some on the 06's have gone 188mph since they have a different tire set up.

With a gear change 200+ isn't possible? Is it because of the torque, or lack of? Not that I wanna go that fast, just curious.

It will happen if you want it to bad enough. It is going to take some money and time though. Check out garth's threads.

Has anyone just changed stock gearing/rear tire profile and done top speed runs? I wonder what she would do with just the gearing change but otherwise stock?

just to give any n00bs a heads up about their speedo reading anything over 190mph its not possible all ZX-10r guages stop reading after 189mph

if you switch from running a 190/50 to a 180/55 its supposed to give you a 2mph faster top speed and if you switch from a 190/50 to a 190/55 its supposed to give you a 4mph increase in top speed. I run a 180/55 tire on my bike because its the lightest and least expensive pilot power 1's :thumbsup:
