thanks. that sounds about what i'm running at. why are the taller gears geared so short? i can see why some people would want a shorter 5th gear for passing on the freeway and such, but it just doens't make sense for 6th gear esp. if i cruize about 30miles or freeway/day.limey said:I know I'm at 80mph @ 5k rpm. and 97mph @ 6k rpm. in 6th.
You could count the teeth on the sprockets. 18/42 stock
i'm definitely not hitting those numbers. just got gas last night and reset the odo. so i can get a definitive numbercrashmasterd said:If I'm not hammering on it I regularly get about 32 MPG by the math. On a long freeway run maybe 37 MPG. If I'm racing or burning up corners, 29 isn't uncommon.
It's been a little better after the header mods and new tune. Barely.
Couldn't tell you what RPM it runs. Just never pay that much attention.
the previous owner has a PCIII hooked up to the bike, so i'm not sure what kind of tune he's running. if i just unhook the PCIII, could there be any potential damage?HarriS said:The bike can run with much leaner mixture at part throttle. Just look at the Tiger and Sprint RS maps. For some reson the S3 is originally tuned very rich at part throttle. My Bandit 1200 had more power but drinked much less.
LOL. smart guy eh? :drink: well think of it this way then. 75mph was jus a theoretical number thrown out there. many horror stories of popos hanging around boards like this waiting for bring down a bragging law offender--even better if they post picture/videos.cheapbastard said:I never run 75mph. :smitty: ;D
