not according to my boyz garmin gps last week... try 176. do you realize how quick ~10 miles clicks off at that speed?Originally posted by nitrouschris
I'll tell ya what, it takes 215hp to go 201.75mph on a real light ZX9(FACT!) ask how i know that!. Realistically, your done at about 165mph if your in the 140-150hp range.
Ever been to Maxton? didnt think so...I gaurantee you havent seen 176mph. The amount of power it takes to push air at that speed, you are making no where near. I trust an timed standing mile over a GPS all day long(mine said 245mph by the way) But think what you will.Originally posted by ******

Chris, we have talked a few years ago, and respect your opinions, but I think his 176 might be more possible than you think. I have a '99 9R, with a DynoJet jet kit, and a Hindle pipe, I have done no dyno testing, just seat of the pants. That being said, I also have done the Sigma 800 bicycle computer mod. The Sigma 800 you calibrate by measuring your tire circumference and input the size in mm into the computer. The computer is has an accuacy of +/- 1 mph to 186mph. I have checked mine with stopwatches against measured miles more than once, checked against the police radar boxes they set up in the trailors along the road again, more than once and I have been within 1 mph every time.
I have a best top speed, using the Sigma 800, of 174.3 mph, with stock gearing. On this run, I had about 500 rpm's left in 6th gear and had to slow due to running out of straight road.
There could be some error due to tire growth at speed, but I have tested the computer at 120 mph on measured miles and always was within 1 mph. Also, these 120 mph tests were done with a chase car,with the passenger running a stopwatch, not by me on the bike.
As a matter of fact, his methodology is FAR superior to any of the other top end claims I've seen in this thread or any other. You can't argue with a stopwatch and a measured distance (assuming the distance and watch are accurate).Originally posted by modcrazy
