the big for in japan had a gentlemans agreement to limit bikes to 300kph, they did this before the govt stepped on with legistration forceing them to do so!Don't remember where I read this, but the law requires that if a bike is "capable of reaching higher speeds" it must be governed to a modest 186.6 MPH. Where they came up with that number I have never been able to figure out.
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"186.6 mph = 300 kph
It's a nice, round number (government types like those) for the metrically-inclined countries that agreed upon these arbitrary limitations.
Pfft, haha. Holy undead thread.is there anyway of getting rid of the rev limiter in 6th gear? my bike is still pulling pretty hard whe it hits it, id like to see what it could get to.
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.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.
hahaha yeah not the most fuel effecint at that speed lolfastest I ever saw on my speedo was 167. I glanced for a split second in a tuck and it felt like my helmet was squeezing my brain. The pavement was super smoothe, but it still feels pretty violent. I was in a tuck for quite a while. You can see your fuel bars dropping quickly at that speed
