Re: 86 750 top speed?
I don't think the speedo's are very accurate up there. I used to routinely take mine up to 220KPH (135MPH) but had to ease it up anywhere from 180KPH and up to avoid the high speed weave. If I nailed it at 180KPH it would be all over the road. It's an 85 with the short twitchy wheebase.
The fastest I ever got it going was a long time ago on the straight stretch of the Squamish HWY (going up the big hill) and I'm pretty sure I saw the needle approach 240KPH (150MPH) but I wasn't really looking at the speedo. I just kept twisting the throttle until I figured I couldn't go any faster.
I've got Dyno sheets that show it going just under 150MPH so that's probably a pretty good indicator of a best case scenario.
I'm building a self-serve registry for listing our bikes from all around the world.
