First off i was wearing all of my gear during this...i cant seem to get my 03' 636 over 150mph. I run out all my gears and cant get it over that.I know maybe I need to grow some balls,but i was wondering if anyone actually knows the top speed of the 03' and what can i do to keep up with my buddies Honda SuperHawk 996?

V Twins Suck!!!!

I've had my '03 up past 150mph (indicated) with a tank bag (so I couldn't get into a tuck) and a ventura luggage rack and tail bag. If your bike isn't getting past 150 there might be a problem. Has the gearing been changed? That could limit your top speed.

The fastest I've gottin was 167 but ran out of room pretty sure it's faster. Sh*t in a wheelie I always @ around 90-110. Keep up the pratice

You should be able to pass the 996 on topend, although the torque of the V-Twin will get him out faster. My buddy has an 04 636 he has had the bike up to 175 indicated. I had my 05 636 up to 170 indicated.

Just be safe and have fun. Sometimes when your first your last.

Maybe you should get on the track at Mid-Ohio and ask them to clock you.
