prob 110, 120, if you have a wind MAYBE 130.:nana

Don't rely on speedos for top speed runs! My friend has a cell phone that has a GPS function on it that can also moniter speed! Greatest phone ever! As soon as I get my head taken care of I'll be using it to run!

(my bike head btw!)

...

(as in the cylinder head on my bike...)

Top end as in top speed? I'm confident that bike will go over 160mph. Probably faster.

My previous bike was a ZX-9R E1 (year 2000 model) and coincidently once i tested top speed with a 1998 ZX-9R. Using GPS phone, the 98 model managed 280km/h and my 2000 model managed 295km/h. Not sure in mph but 300km/h = 186mph.

had this bike a week tomorrow...only hit 135,...
but effortlessly, and i wasnt aware untill i looked down , and went ...wooooaaa...then i happened to catch the last streak of a 25 mph sign zoom past me...

(rural oregon makes no sence, yes a 25 mph in the middle of nowhere)

I will update as i hit the higher marks, i figure it should be good for atleast 165.
