FACT: The only way this bike will hit rev-limit in 6th gear, is on a dyno. It does not have the power to push all the way up when she is in the breeze.
FACT: At 130mph, I already feel like I have gone to plaid, so I really don't care.
also I must respectfully disagree. I am running 18/45, and the bike has a little more "zip", but also is pulled up out of its trouble area of 3500-4500 RPM.
I have same config (Daytona motor in S3) but I'm afraid have not taken it to limit. Besides my final gearing is 18:45
Daytona is 29PS over the 955 S3, but 'only' 19PS over the 1050 S3.
Factory quoted numbers in PS are actually 118, 128 & 147 converted to HP respectively for S3 955, S3 1050 & Daytona 955.
I went from the T509 885 engine at 108 PS (106.5 HP) to Daytona motor at 149 (147HP)
But yes, if you want absolute top speed, the Daytona 955 is definitely going to pull on the 1050 S3 when it runs out of grunt (i.e. power limited) - even if both naked
I hate to say this but I can vouch for mine having seen the rev limiter more than once in 6th gear I takes some road but it will get there I can assure you! After 125 it is slower but steadily rising on MPH.
I have ridden with another member here on the forum and I am sure he will say many things about our rides together and taking it easy on the triple would be in that discussion Right Wabbit
Are you saying the 955 will top out higher than the 1050?
I ride an 06 speedy 1050, my cousin has an 03 955 ...
So it actually hit the limiter and was cutting out, or you looked down and saw the revs over 10k?
