Maximum Speed

Is 156 the fastest a stock bike will go? I couldn't get it up any higher. it wasn't redlining, it just wouldn't go

Re: Maximum Speed

mine is an 07 and it does 177 redlined in sixth gear and thats because i dropped a tooth on the front sprocket so i lost a little on the top end not much though. Be safe man shit can happen real fast at those speeds.

Re: Maximum Speed

my max speed is 162 , could get 165 prob. i had 500 rpm left but ran out of room.
i did it on a normal road. one lane each direction. up here in maine.
ran out of room , had to brake.
05 r6 , micron midpipe and slip on . about 10,500 miles on it. i weigh 170 lbs .
6 foot 3. you think height has big effects on top speed???
jluna9657 that seems fast, i believe u but thats pretty quick for a 598cc machine. how much u weigh???
later fellas

05 r6 (sold)
2000 integra type r ( j spec ) crashed...
2001 Integra, jdm type r swap

Did you get a speedo healer to correct for the gearing? Stock speedo's read 10% fast, gearing changes that another 5-10%. So you're 177 indicated was more like 150 actual. An R6 won't push 177 unless you have a superbike motor in there and with -1 in the front, you don't have the gearing to get that fast no matter how much power you have.

Re: Maximum Speed

^ I was gonna say that.. I think many people are mislead by the speedo and fake dyno charts.. A buddy of mine seemed to think his 06 cbr 1000 would do 190ish and had 180 hp , i corrected him and told him even with a full system and a pciii that was incorrect.

Re: Maximum Speed

167.4 is the top speed for the 06-07 r6 stock at any rate. but at those speeds it takes a lot more hp to increase because of wind resistance

Re: Maximum Speed

were you clocked? Remeber our speedos are inaccurate sp* and the accuracy is inversly proportional to speed.
