It's a nice, round number (government types like those) for the metrically-inclined countries that agreed upon these arbitrary limitations.
That is still crazy fast. If you have ever seen Ghostrider on youtube and his 499hp busa. Anyways I know no way of eliminating the governer on the bike. Sounds like the "ebay resistor hp mod chip to me... aka BS"

Si. My old xx would briefly hit 192 and fall back to 187 indicated. Sure felt like there was more left too...

Pfft, haha. Holy undead thread.

It's not goverened. You're running out of gearing. You'd have to install a rear sprocket with less teeth or something.

Also, the more you know: to help stop crotch rocket riders from killing themselves, all sportbike speedos are 5% miscalibrated on purpose. GPS units will give true speeds - so 168 on the speedo is actually 160. Sorry to kick you guys in the ego. ;)

The govm't regulation for the speed restriction also stems from tire manufacturers. Most tires are only rated to W, safe up to 168mph (Michelin Pilot Power 2 CT's are only W tires). Above that are Y rated tires, safe at 186+mph, but there aren't very many of them out there that are DOT approved, mostly just race tires.

If manufacturers intentionally miscalibrate speedos, then the odometers are INTENTIONALLY off as well, which woud open them up to some serious legal issues regarding warranties. They have to fall within a certain tolerance. If they are a little off it is no big deal, but there is a limit. Honda actually had a class action law suit against them with the earlier 7g accords because the speedo/odo was off by enough where the warranty woud be up early. Honda had to honor the warranty for extra miles (I forget the exact amount right now) on the affected cars.

Not saying that the speedos are not off, just saying that they do not intentionally calibrate it up 5% on all bikes. This is just fuel for the conspiracy theorists.

5% mismatch personally tested myself with my 05 and 07 RRs and Garmin GPS. I think it's both intentional and undocumented. Wink wink nudge! lol

the rev light comes on at 171-173. the bike pretty much has nothing left too offer at that point. governors are for gsxr's because 18 year olds buy them and crash them. same reason why suzuki's have hazard lights.

If he started a new thread you'd tell him to use the search. And CBR's have 18 year old's riding them doing stupid things as well.

Personally i find riding over 125 mph to be more of a stress producer than enjoyable.
Try a -1/+2 520 conversion and enjoynthe <100 mph club with me, more fun than a barrel of monkeys.
