I was just wondering how fast you guys have gone on your R1. My buddy was telling me that he's been 189 on his 03 stock! :confused: I've got a full Akra. sys. and I was in 6th at 10,000 rpms going 157. I thought, "there is now way this will do 189+." However I was wearing a backpack and had a tankbag. He tole me that's why I was going so "slow." Do you guys agree? :dunno

I agree, I got mine up to 165 when I became to scared to look back down. I was doing that humming like Stalone does in Driven. I was in the zone man. I was in the zone:scared

Word. I hear ya fellas. I just don't believe 189. It's not that 157 wasn't fast enough. It's just that I could hit 155 on my R6 and figured the R1 would do way more.
I hope I'm not encouraging anyone to go out and try to hit 190 tonight. I don't think you wanna hit the rev limiter in 6th. Scary! :scared :cryin :scared

clocked by chopper in pursuit and it claims they had me doing 287km/h which I don't think was very accurate but when I was running I really didn't have time to stare at the tack to long or else my ass would have been grass.

Heres a pic from highschool track meet:p

I think the unwritten rule though with the speedo is that you have to minus around 10-15km from what it says cause of your weight and wind resistence and stuff like that.

I think martinC explained it once but I can't remember.
I will search and see what I can find.

Anyone have faster track times in the hundred meter dash:sneaky

On the dyno my speedometer read 186 but the dyno registered the speed at 174.

On the street I've seen 173 on the speedometer.

Don't forget about altitude, at 1,100 ft I have seen 183 on the speedo, but the highest published 'true' speed for an 02 was 167. Just so you know the speedo can be off 2-3 mph for every 60 mph but most off the time the speedo reads high.

I seen 155, which is what? Like 140. I really need a new windscreen other than this sportech, cause i looked like i was pushing my face up against a window. Nose all mashed up and chit, but i am havin' fun. Definately go faster when i can get a good tuck with a new screen...

If you need a dampner for top speed runs you have chassis set problems(not enough rear preload, makes the front lite).
I haven't got my '02 over 140,on the street things have a habit of jumping in your way(happened to me a few times) and at that kind of speed there's a good chance of hitting it before you can react to it, plus I got an R1 for the twisties( that's where it rocks the best):rock :fork
