Ditto!!!ckouze said:PLEASE,PLEASE, PLEASE get used to the bike for a while and be sure you're comfortable with the bike at speed before you try any top speed runs : I dont know you're experience level but unfaired bikes are a handful at high speeds due to the wind pressure being exerted on your shoulders/arms etc. This can lead to unwanted and dangerous steering inputs especially if you're new to the bike. Be careful man!
Have raced Laguna Seca, Willow Springs, Streets of Willow, Firebird and Vegas. Owned a 220 Rwhp Turbo CBR 1100XX before Suzuki even made the Busa. Used to regularly exceed 200 Mph.L-Train said:emmvanderpol sent this post indicating it was 149 on the gear ratio.
Maybe at a lower altitude I could get a hair more power but it stuck here and I couldn't get it past 6900. Felt stable to me as well.
