What's your top speed?

So I tried doing a search to see if there was a thread already on this (which im sure there is somewhere) but kept getting the message that too many posts or too short of a key words or what not and I would also like to get active members responses instead of going through a thread from years ago, so here goes...


What's your top speed that you have hit on your 300? You can also put your weight and any details that you would like to add.

P.S. - I know the speedometer can be off by a bit but let's go by what the speedometer said instead of a GPS tracked speedometer.

5' 8", 130 lb. 116 mph is the fastest I've gotten her up to, and my 14/40 gearing corrects the speedo (mods in sig). However, all of us 300 riders know top speed ain't shit - it's corner speed we're after!!

118, front straight at Road America with full tune and race gas. To get there I have to have a really good exit out of the last turn and tuck down so hard it hurts. (I'm a big guy) Knees in tight, elbows in tight and head touching the gas tank. If I don't do all of that just right I instantly drop 3 mph.

I just noticed i never put my speed but I'm 5'7 about 135lbs and top speed i did on a straightaway was about 109 struggling to hit 110 at least, lol, on a downhill i hit about 114. Only thing i've changed so far was my exhaust, i got a yoshi r77 slip-on.
