Hold up, are they computer governed? My bike does 130 in 3rd gear, I find it hard to believe it can only go another 16 mph with 3 gears left unless it just governs out. And also I'm goin off info for the 09s in the quarter mile
Unless you've changed your gearing I find that hard to believe. Based on the stock gearing of a Daytona 600, if that is what you are referring to, close to 130 in 4th, yes, but not 3rd.
Per MC News comparison test between the '09 Speed Triple and Buell XB12S :
"The Speed Triple posts a 10.82 quarter-mile @ 125.01 mph ...... Top speed in both cases is a matter of gearing, as their rev limiters prevent anything faster. The Triumph reached a maximum velocity of 143.3 mph"
Of course those are bone stock bikes. Some of us have (cough) slightly (cough cough) modified bikes
Your sig says Daytona 600 and you are in the street triple forum with a speed triple gearing post-and posted about problems keeping the front down under 3500 rpm and 1/4 WOT?????
