This is a theroetical maximum. It assumes no drivetrain slippage and that you could get 14,400 in 6th. Also, the tire height computation is crude. Look at the difference between the base and 1/4" growth speeds. Much better to use a real measurement.Originally posted by tommyboynjataol
I put in 14,400 RPM and top speed was 189.59 in 6th
Quickness depends so much on the launch and other factors like weight, atmospheric conditions, surface conditions, power curves, blah blah blah, it would be almost impossible to predict that reliably. On my paycheck anyway.Originally posted by hammer
This is the coolest thing ever.
I wonder if there is a calculation so you can see what effect changing the front sprocket would have on 1/4 mile times. Any Ideas?
It will calculate your speed according to your gearing and indicated RPM. Handy for determining top speed (as most seem to do) and actual speed after a gear change.Originally posted by arturo3rd
im stupid...help i dont get waht to do[V]? my bike is a 01 stock sprockets, dunlop 180/55/17...is this like how fast can my bike supposedly go or at certain gears?
I dont understand about the wind resistance... If there is too much wind resistance then the bike wont get to 14,500 (or your red line). On a perfect day, your bike hits your red line in 6th gear, wouldnt that still be 160mph.Originally posted by ZX636Skiv
In real life (on a dyno) my '03 pulled 160 mph (exactly)for a top speed. It showed 187 on the speedo. But this didn't factor in wind resistance either and the fact that my bike won't be stock for long.
I've yet to see anyone that can get to redline on an unmodified 6R. For that matter, I haven't even heard of a modded bike doing it. The power it takes to overcome wind resistance increases exponentially with speed. That's why a ~160 horse 12R can only pull 20mph more than your ~100 horse 6.Originally posted by maxxxMy point is that, if the bike is at red line, on the freeway in 6th gear...wouldnt that be the same mph if on a dyno with no wind resistance at red line in 6th gear.
