Speedo always tops out at 186 mph. I wonder if there's a way, besides calculating 5-10% off-set or buying a radar gun, of getting an accurate reading? Things that make me go hhmmmmmm.......

82(mph) indicated.....

saw a good stretch of road and decided to nail-er'

ps- if you switch (US model) the gauge to report in kph, then apply a correction factor (via yellobox) to it to reflect MPH, it should then read up to an actual 300 mph, just reported in KPH seemingly....

as far as the mileage racking up......

well thasa different story altogether

Around 230km/h indicated. Laying on the tank can be comfterable sometimes.

INDICATED 167 (I want a yellow box for X-mas). That is when my common sense kicked in and told me it was to dark to see a muffler or something in the road.

If you have a yellow box, you can read the directions, and it tells you a way to time how long it takes you to get from one mile marker to the next, and that is supposedly very accurate considering the markings are surveyed n such...

02 750 183mph indicated, prob mid 170's actual. Left a CBR 954 and 929 after 170mph indicated. Seems the top end of those bikes is much lower.

After 160mph indicated its all irrelivent anyhow....its just crazy fast.

Amazing how once the throttle is closed though, the bike sheds mph very fast even with no brakes.

Shouldn't this be in the squid forum? Just for the record, though. My 99' ZX-9R hit 200 mph indicated, so I'm guessing actually about 180 mph.
