View Full Version : Really built motor lacking top speed

I just tried to go for a top speed run and was only able to do 55 mph into a slight head wind. I am sort of disapointed, others like Oldrouge seem to manage 60+ mph or more with very simular setups.

The bike is very fast and rockets up to that speed. It can beat cars now and can slice and dice though traffic. Accelleration is twice as good as before. Once on top it sits at about 8700 rpm. Should it be reving higher? Do I need lighter rollers or should I break in the red variator spring a little more.

I think it would go faster but I ran out of room, maybe the head wind didnt help?

New, strong springs do need a bit of a break-in...
