I know my bike tops out around 92 in 1st with my gearing. I was at the track last night and was coming on to the front straight in 3rd topping out and getting into 4th pretty hard and I think 130 was the top speed I saw. Even with my gearing I should bust 130 in 3rd shouldnt I? I will get the GPS out and check the speedohealer for accuracy. I am not worried about speed on the track as much as the accuracy of my speedometer, I just put the speedohealer on this spring and hope it isnt already screwed up. BTW if the guy that had the other 10 down at Nashvillle Motor Speedway last night is on the forum, post up and let me know how the repairs are going.

Except for the guy who was leaving with a cracked rib and a banged up bike when I rolled in Sat I was the only one there on a 10 that I saw. There were several zx6's though.

hey man.. I lost 7 mph going -1 in the front. I would expect you to loose another 7-8 with the larger rear sprocket. So top should still be around 165-170 mph.

My bike hit 181 with -1 +1 because it was bouncing off the revlimiter hard. Using gps to verify btw.
