How fast is your bike?

22 posts in this topic

How fast have you gotten your bike up to? Name the speed, and the make and model of your bike. Like XR650L 85mph (so far) :)

85 mph at present gearing with dirt wheels (15/48 gearing)

95 mph (15/45 gearing on 17" wheels)

It would go a bit faster but it doesn't like it

Speed noted using a "calibrated" Trailtech endurance computer, standard speedos are way off, they can read 10 mph over.

All done on a private road of course.

This isn't scientific as I did not set out to do top speed runs, these are merely the top speeds I have seen.

Stock '95 XR600 14-45 gearing- 145 km/h or 90 mph apsolutely tapped out flat road

My stock XR650R 2001 14/41 gearing used to regularly pull 170 km/h or about 107-108 mph (thats silly speeds for a dirt bike!) tapped out on the same road!

Stock '2000 model XR400 that I had pulled 145 km/h or 90 mph flat out with 15/40 gearing and staintune aftermarket muffler.

2002 Xr650R-fully uncorked stock gearing. I got 103mph out of her. That was on an analog speedo, dirt road. It was nuts, haven't even touched 85 since. She stayed smooth though, thank god I didn't tap a rock.

You guys are recording some high top speeds. You must be having the valves bouncing and caning the nuts off the bike surely. If I rev it hard (with the valves bouncing) with 18" dirt wheels and 15/48 gearing I would be lucky to see 90mph. I could get 100mph on road wheels with 15/45 gearing but would be absolutely flat out.

Are you sure your speedo's are accurate? or maybe it's mine that is under reading!
