How many RPMS\'s at 90-100MPH in 6th gear?

OK, I know we all cruise around well over the speed limit, our bikes beg for it so here is my question. Can you share what your RPM's read when you are doing 90-100MPH in 6th gear? Mine is reading between 8-10 grand. I think that is way too high but I had my father take it out and verify this. According to the shifter I am in 6th gear. I dont recall it being so high last summer but sure enough it is now. I know I have the sprocket conversion, but honestly wondering what other bikes avg around the 100MPH mark. The bike runs great and no slipes or misses in the tranny either. Also just changed the oil recently too-which I think on ours also is used in the tranny. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Any idea's?
Thanks
Chuck

Yup, I thought it was too. I will wait. I figure it will take a week or so to get some responses.

Thanks for the comps on the bike too

Much appreciated

That is what I was guessing.. between 6-8k..Damn Damn.. Well just another thing to think about tomorrow in the garage. I do enjoy the rush of 60-120 with the flick of wrist though.


Thanks for checking though. Appreciate the help

When i hit the humble 100mph on my GSXR600 (97), the rev counter is exactly on 8000rpm. Spoke to a friend of mine he went out to test his (not that he needed begging:) ) and his was reading the same on a 98 GSXR600. Hope this helps now go and thrash the living daylights out of it:)

I hit about 7400rpm at the 100mph mark. It used to be about 7800 before I bought a pcII. I hope this helps....

Thanks to everyone for your input!!! Yup, it sure does prove where I thought it should be running. I figured after one nice weekend, I would get a few more posts on this matter. Doesn't take much time to hit 100MPH on these things.


Appreciate it guys!
Going cruising in a lil bit actually

Re: How many RPMS\'s at 90-100MPH in 6th gear?

I was doing 100 mph @ 7.5k in 6th gear this morning. My bike has stock gearing and it had stck exhaust at that time with the corresponding map on PCII CD (I think it is 001). I was on my way back from M.O.T test station, the bike passed all right. Time to put on my Yosh RS3 full system, tiny number plate and all other illegal goodies, yuppppeeeeee

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Thanks again guys. Good to see everyone is having fun researching this post. Now for the next assignment. LOL

Thanks Mark.

I checked my linkage and it's good. I do shift up into 6th gear easy. Gonna have to take to some people at the local shop.
