6K3 what will they do?

Anyone with a 600K1,2 or3 as they are all the same I believe.. what indicated top speed have you got from them in standard trim. I am running my k3 in but would like to know what I've got coming to me. I do plan to fit a scorpion can soon, the one with the removable baffle, not sure what difference this will make to power though, any experiences?

Also, does a double bubble screen affect top speed, my mate reckons his zx6r isn't as fast with the DB screen, must be more wind resistance.

Re: 6K3 what will they do?

Well I have not had mine flat out, yet but they will do around 160 indicated. The speedos are not to accurate though.
Had mine on the paddock stand giving it a winter warm up, going through the gears and I gave it a quick blip in 6th. Saw 169mph on the clock!!! Whoops.

Re: 6K3 what will they do?

169mph on the paddock stand is taking a BIG risk ain't it, if it fell off you'd have a big hole in the front of your garage or house and not much bike left either

I read in BIKE magazine a 600 group test and they had a genuine 160mph from a K2, obviously the clock reads over so was wondering what you can get from them. I'll be a bit dissapointed if I can't get an indicated 170mph

Re: 6K3 what will they do?

172 sounds about right . I just booked mine in for the 1st service and the guy in the shop said he'd seen 173 on the clock on a k3. I guess that would be a genuine 160mph.
My 750WP that the 6K3 has replaced just nudged 162ish (analogue of course) on the clock.

Re: 6K3 what will they do?

Around about 170 on the clock, at top speed if you have your arse against the back of the seat, lift it up about three inches and you'll gain about 5mph, also tuck those elbows in tight to the tank. Don't do any of this on the way to work though!
