I got my 05 zx6r about 5 or 6 weeks ago. I have road bikes before but nothing with this much power, just wondering what is the top speed on it?
I put a power commder, yosh. pipe, and a K&N filter in it , if that helps with your answer.

I hit 161mph. today and I think it had more.

160? Pretty fast for 6. Speedo's are off by a % I forget. Be safe, I hope it was on the track or a nice country road with just you and a cornfield.

my bike is stock, i would say that it wouldent go any faster than 186, i was already at 15.5k at 183, im going to put it on a dyno soon, and get hp tq, and im going to have him do an actual top speed run, so whatever it tops out in 6th we will get a roller reading for speed, instead of indicated, wich as he mentioned can be off.

has anyone tried the speedo corrector available? supposed to keep you from putting extra miles on also which keeps the bikes value a little higher. anyone with words on this? I am still in the break in period so I can't say top speed yet.

Top End for me

I have pretty much the same set up but I allso have The Bss Nitros system
and have seen 180 but I felt like I was about to get a chest full of piston's.
also the run was on a 4 mile straight away and it also had a 6% down grade
the temp was 62 deg F and their was no wind .
hope this helps :crazyloco

I hit 165mph with light head-on wind!!! I also had a big back-pack on my back, that could of knocked off +/-5mph!!!

:banghead i hit 160 but it wasn't giving up at all i gave up, only got a yosh slip on
Do you think that the 07's will have this kind of power even though they are getting rid of the 636? I heard they were supposed to because of the redesign but just looking for some opinions out there.

I think the kawi digital speedo's don't read over 186. When I did my dyno run on the 636, it stopped at 186, and I haven't had an opportunity to test the 10R in that regard. Realistic, actual top speed is probably in the 155-160 range.

really? 166 thats it? i know 600's can go faster than that stock, at least 175 if not more...but then agained i've never seen a top speed run on a dyno...but it most mags u read they say they can pull 280 km/h (dono what that is in mph, assume is somewhere round the 175 mark) or somewhere arround there.... fastest the cops have ever clocked me was 190 km
:banghead..that was a pricy ticket
