Were would you need to go 160? just wondering, i find the fastest i go on the street would be around 90-100 when passing people on the highway when its really moving and all the cars are doing around 85-90. or on highway 46 when you pass people.

i have done my best of 270kmh when i went through a tollway & when i saw the highway is very clear i down shifted & pinned the throttle & shifted at 14,500rpm on 4th, 5th. befor4e i shifted to 6th i was already at 250kmh & when i shifted to 6th & saw 270kmh i backed off & hit the brakes, oh man that was a rush as i saw my rpm's are still at 14,000rpm so there's a little bit more speed to be had.

btw i have 15/44 sprockets so how much speedo error are we talking about here?

The speedo stock will lie a little and tell you a higher speed. For a 15/44 conversion vs. the stock 16/43

(16/43) / (15/44) = ~1.09

This means that if your speedo read 270 you were actually going (270/1.09) = ~247kmh

I recently topped my bike out. I was following a friend on his 05 gixxer 750 Hit the rev limiter on a long downward straight and my speedo indicated 178mph. I have a gear change 15/45 with a full arata system. I know the speedo is off but we were moving oh and the 750 didn't pull me until I hit the rev limiter and even then he ran out very soon after.

Are you from Wisconsin? According to cops out there the sportbikes all hit magical speeds (AKA the Famous Incident about a year ago there with the helicopter cop...)
