well, I got a 620 and did hte same thing. reduced top speed from 140 mph to 119 mph
Did you change your spedometer too???

My 620 top speed went from 118 to 120 when I dropped one tooth on the front. Same strech of road, same weather conditions....tucked in, downhill, tail wind etc...

You may as well have a 4 speed with that gearing, or do you plan on pulling a plow or something? First gear will end up pretty interesting :eek:

nitro, as in NOS (NO2) right? the thing where you push a button and you get an uncontrolled speed burst for 5 seconds? yea i recognize that from Biker Boyz

Although I am biased, cuz all my riding is under 50 mph 90% of the time. a need to go 140 mph and have my arms ripped off is not my cup o tea. More power to you if you like it though. I'm not one to look down on someone for having different tastes.

I've hit 135+ indicated on my speedo on the M800 Dark, but I think that was being slightly generous. I regularly hit speeds of 110+ going uphill on a 16

Just checked mine again. Flat freeway, semi-dense air (good for intake, bad for wind resistence), tucked and open throttle. Would not budge past 122mph.
This is an '03 620 dark w/ open airbox, low-mount DP (Remus) pipes and nothing else.

2000 900 Monster. I went from 15/38 to 15/41 and although I never really checked the top speed on the old gearing it still runs to 220kph (you work it out - 132mph I think). Having said that I spend most of the time around 100mph to 120 at most. If you want more buy a 4 valver! Or a Hayabusa.

It will clutch up in second with ease now though!
