Should be 85 mph+ and I bought tank decals for my WR426 from Factory Effex.

Contrary to popular belief, stickers are not necessary for motorcycle operation. :cry:

103 is just crazy!!!!! I can't seem to find 5th gear much on the trail as it is!!!!! I would think 70's would be a closer top speed, but then again I'm just guessing.

I'm highly confident that if I put a TLD sticker under my front fender I would gain atleast 2hp : )

Like the imac .... the blue ones go faster...
All those stickers you're putting on the front fender are increasing drag and SLOWING YOU DOWN! ; )

Top speed is all gearing and how fast you really want to go. Personally, I can't stand the vibration over 50 going down blacktop.

You can modify this chart and plug in the primary reduction, gear ratios redline and tire info to get a max mph figure. If you MS Excel anyway...

I've heard 90 or so with stock gearing. Just a digit; thats about how fast I'd ever want to go on a dirt-oriented motorcycle. I've taken my DR650 up to, hell, 110 once or twice. I'll bet if I strip down to my socks I can breach 111. SCARY AS HELL, I don't reccommend...

I've got my 04 WR450F up to 95mph and that was enough for me. A sixth gear for sure would be nice!

I don't know about the 450, but had my wr426 at 95mph and it was still pulling like a frieght train. And that was with 13/58 gearing! Showroom stock (but with street-legal kit), shaved throttle stop and the original knobby tires. Very unsafe and I don't recommend it.

However the stock baffle insert flew off 2 miles later...maybe not a bad idea after all!?! K
