If he has mod'ed his bike he can get up to 176. You can watch videos on YouTube.com with them at that speed. My bike has hit 170 (indicated) easily, but I have her modded up. What the actual speed of the bike was I don't know. I run with the 525 setup. And that was NOT done on the streets.that 176 thing is bs. does he think hes "cool" for admitting that?
i was full throttle in 6th gear, on my 2007, fully tucked and only hit 158. from then on, it accelerates really slow
Spot on. If you look at my 2001 R6 you'd never be able to tell that it could do 170 plus; but it does, I'm just not much into "looks" mods; everything outside is stock other than a double bubble and solo cowl.What you can't see is if the guy put a PC3 (or like computer), ignition timer, autoshifter, volocity stacks, etc on his bike. Who cares about braided lines? All that gives you is a firmer grip on the brake (not as much flex). Half the guys tracking their bikes don't even go with braided lines because they don't like the feel. Any fool can up his bike's performance without ever touching the sprockets, tires, or brake lines.
I can't tell what he has on his bike myself, but the video does imply it is more stock than not.
