Top Speed

I got no trouble getting up to an indicated 90 mph rather quickly - which is fine for me on my Thruxton and general freeway riding,..

Going faster seems to require more time at WOT and laying on the tank...

So I was wondering what other people's top speeds ? On either the Bonnie or Thruxton.

I have BC Ark and Predators. No other mods

In fifth gear and somewhere between 7.5 and 8000 RPM my speedo read just a tick over 120.

ARK, DNA pods, Predator exhaust and TTP remap.

100 mph indicated with more left in the tank. That's going up a 8% grade.

TPUSA Dom Touring pipes, and air box removed, Uni filters, Pieman Igniter , Keihin 35mm CRS carbs.

Ride safe,

Quentin

Going up a hill, in a normal riding position (I have Tracker bars), she blew past 170Km/h and was nudging 180 before I had to ease off due to traffic. So I would think that a genuine 120mph is realistic.

No other mods? You opened up the intake and the exhaust. I hope you rejected accordingly. Both my Scrambler and Bonnie could reach 120 but they are injected and remapped.

Damned Dirty Biker!

I've ran my '06 T100 to an indicated 115 mph... level grade w/ no tailwind. Mods are Staintune reverse cone exhaust, airbox w/ a Norman Hyde bellmouth, 125 main jets, and a stock 18T counter sprocket. But don't tell my wife.

115 mph on my '05 thruxton, and it had a bit more, maybe 120-125. sans airbox and AI, predators.

i've had my '06 scrambler to 105, and it'll go a lot more if you get out of the wind. sans airbox and AI, fcr's and thunderbike exhaust. thing flat out screams at high speeds, really fun...
