I saw 62 in 4th gear, shifted into 5th and backed the frick off! Need to make it to work ya know. Guys with gearing changes are going over 90 easy. That shat aint for me.

It is all relevant to gearing. If you run 16/40 gearing you would go close to 180-220 km/h, but if you are like me 14/50 i hit about 135km/h and she's screaming.

My bike has had all the free mods and AIS kit done. It also has a GYTR slip on pipe. I ride at an alltitude of 4350 feet and I have managed to get 147km
(92mph) on a dirt road. I am sure with some sprocket changing you should be able to hit 160km (100mph) as the bike feels as if it has enough power to get there. Probably will take a while to get the brown skid marks out of your pants though.


:bonk: :D :naughty:

I have stock gearing (06 - 14/50) and Have seen 78 mph in a field on a slight incline!!! This bike flat out rips.

I have also looked into how fast 2nd is as sson as it hits the rev limiter, which is between 39-41 mph. I thought that was impressive.

if your so worried about going fast just by a crotch rocket. The 12'' suspension travel isnt just for show. Its scary when you go to the desert and people just race up and down the fire roads all day. Be safe everyone

I live in the desert and only haul booty on the roads I know in my back yard. Yes the WR450 has a speedo plus I have my Garmin mounted to my bars and that tracks you higest speed.
