Top was around 150 (indicated) on my way into work one morning...

A long straight exit off 35 south onto 280 south (cali roads).

The best part is as you enter the "oh shit" section of the powerband....

Hope you have a firm grip on the tank....:D

Hey Valgar... 150 was all you got up to? The first time I maxed out my 636 the speedo read 162. Actually I was out riding with 'TommyV' when I got that fast. A few days later I went out riding and actually got it up to 167. I'm not too sure why it went a little faster. Maybe because it was a mucher cooler morning, plus it was on a slight decline... maybe???

By the way... that's what the speedo read. I'm not too sure how acurate these digital speedometers are?

G.....;)

ODIE,

I have read that the bike makes peak power at 12500 rpm. On my last ride I was running about 140 mph or around 12000+ rpm and I wanted to see what my black 636 had so I held it and it pulls way harder than my zx7 and it did not stop pulling. I let off at 158 and there was no sign of my bike wanting to stop, I believe red-zx that it will go 167.(on the speedo)

I had my speedo up to about 165 But I backed off it, I felt like she had a lot more spunk left in her though. Im sure she would go over the 170 mark. This was on a closed course ofcourse.

I swear to god I thought I had mine going at 281KM/h. My buddy with his Gixxer 750 said he was behind me gaining slowly and he was going around 270KM/h.

Maybe I need to redo this because I was hoping that it topped out at 299KM/h. Will post video when my camera mount comes in... :)

Anyone call Kawi up and ask them?

What's your octane level?

Have seen 180mph on the clock :Dmine is an 03(B1)and has akrapovic can and made 114 bhp on the dyno[8D.

All the reports in the uk say top speed is around 160/165 mph so as speedos' are generaly about 10% optomistic thats means mine did about 162mph.

not too shabby:)

Hey bikealarmblair, that's an impressive HP reading... do you still have the dyno chart ? What rpm was peak at with the Akrapovic and how did the over-rev look on the dyno ? Are you running a PC III ?

I gotta get mine in to dyno it sometime soon, but I'm very interested in seeing your results if possible...

Thanks!

SideShow,
That was one funny comercial. We never get to see any good adds like that over here.

Just out of curiosity did anyone see the tire comercial with the dog trying to commit suicide after seeing his "bitch" cheating on him? As far as I konw it was taken off line but I didnt know if anyone sill had it or not.

Mr. Speed
