Top speed per gear.

Does anyone know off hand what the top speed in each gear is for a stock 2015 GSX-R 750. 1st gear I'm most interested in but the rest are appreciated. Thank you

Re: Top speed per gear.

Your first post should have been in "The Starting Line" introducing yourself and telling us about your riding background.

This will give you some idea. Why do you want to know?

Each gears top speed?

OP, IIRC the top speed in first for the 750 is right around 80mph.

Re: Top speed per gear.

I havent been able to load gearingcommader on my tablet for a few weeks now:smash
Ant,you should be able to move the rpm limit up and down to suit what your bikes actual rev limit is.

Re: Top speed per gear.

I have only tried it on a mobile device, maybe that is my issue.

Or the fact that I am juat a dumb plumber, that could be it too.

Re: Top speed per gear.

It's not the rev limiter RPM, it's the RPM at which max power is reached.
It's not the same for all bikes and can easily be adjusted if necessary.

Re: Top speed per gear.

Yes,but you can enter rpm redline and calculate top speed from that as per gearingcommanders website:

Hi bud

Just had a quick look through some GoPro footage on my L5 750 MotoGP - stock gearing.

Could be 1 or 2 mph short as I try at around 14k rpm when flat out rather than hit the limiter.

1st: 86mph
2nd: 120mph
3rd: 140mph
4th: 158mph
5th: 174mph
6th: (Edited) No comment - far too contentious subject for my liking

Hope that helps

Cheers

James

Mph - just updated

How fast in 6th? Absolutely no idea and don't really give a monkies the bike feels bloody awesome that's all I care about. Felt fast enough

The chap wanted to know the top speed in each gear so I posted the top speed in each gear according to the speedometer. I dont record my bike on GPS to verify my exact speed.

Cheers

Pretty sure the speedo stops reading at 186mph... Unless you have video to showbit reading 190mph?

And those numbers aren't even close to accurate, sorry to say.

6th the speedo (as far as I can see - light made it difficult) was 188 but at around 13750rpm so you may well be right. I put 190 to stay consistent with the 14k rpm.

Dont be sorry bud I really don't care.

If I could be bothered I'd go and do a test with GPS overlay but then you guys would probably say well the GPS is way off!

It sounds like I was only doing 85mph anyway.

Re: Top speed per gear.

You're not helping him out by misleading him into thinking his 750 goes 190mph
