Track speeds

What's the fastest you've seen on your speedometer at a trackday. I'm curious what some of the bigger bikes and 250's have seen. No highway speeds............. since that does'nt really require any skill. post up bike place and speed. I'll start:
01-R-6
Road America
160 mph

Unfortunately, RA has three spots where an 05 GSX-R1000 hits the max displayable speed WAY before the end of the straight. Read out is 186 and it is still accelerating for another third of the straight at that point.

At RA, I run longer gearing than stock... so your guess is as good as mine. FFAST... that is the answer.

.... SV650 at 118mph indicated at the end of Putnam Parks straight. It didn't really have any steam left for me once I got to 115

1 down in the front, 2 up in the back, but the speedo sensor is on the front wheel so gearing doesn't affect the readout.

I may be wrong, but I swear I have seen an indicated higher than that on mine (04).............do you have the TRE mod?

I may be wrong cuz I was going so fast, I really wasnt concentrating on the speedo.......The guy on the 750 topped out (174 indicated) and said I was walking away.....

Oh yeah, stock gearing with speed limiter removed.

Road America 172mph indicated down the straight on the 04' R6 with gearing for Blackhawk, so in reality it was probably 150, and I was redlined before I got a third of the way down the front straight.

The 186 was without the speed limiter removed. Gearing was way taller than stock at RA.

This week, resistor is getting clipped... AND I have a TRE in the trailer to try out as well...

186 that is. Gentlemen's manufacturers agreement limits stock bike to 300km (186mph).

That one down in the front must be pretty big difference. I got up to about 130 or so on the SV at Road America, a couple times a lap with +2 in the rear, stock front sprocket. Speedo is tough to read at that speed, especially when the instrument panel is held on with zip ties

I was past the power curve on the SV by my (albeit too early) braking zone at Putnam. Not sure how fast, but somewhere after the power peak and before redline, probably around 120.
