The physical actual top speed of the 636 was in the low-mid 160's, so no matter what you see on the speedo you know you're going under say 166ish.

Damn....I really thought the 636 was faster than that.

I can hit 165-170 in my car and it feels so much slower than 165-170 on the bike, haha

Nope. Both the manufacturer and journalist tests publish top speed tests and such when the bikes are first released. Most literbikes don't even break 185 actual. I had my Z up to 165 once, and to me it felt WAY faster than 165 on the bike. :dunno:

Thats weird..a Z is electronically limited to 155...are you modded?
Even the cheapest ECU's remove the electronic limiter, and the stock gearing is good to 187mph. I never really considered it "modded" but I did have a few bits.

I agree, everything about the interior was perfectly placed. Really felt like a cockpit.

I agree. I've never had a car over 115-120 but any speed over 80 or 90 feels faster to me in the car than on the bike. Also, I'm just more comfortable at triple digits on the bike.

If you want it to FEEL faster (un safe) ride with no fairings (aka naked). Triple digits above 130 will feel like your gonna fly off. But be prepared for your neck to be aching(sp??).

I saw an indictated 182 the other day.

What was my actual MPH?
I had mine to 182 indicated as well. After using a radar indicator to adjust mine by 9%, that's more like 165-166.
The physical actual top speed of the 636 was in the low-mid 160's, so no matter what you see on the speedo you know you're going under say 166ish.
ive seen 182 several times.

dyno showed 162 as my top speed. i think that was on the limiter. which ive NEVER hit in 6th.
so id say it was prob just less than 160 in reality. :dunno:
