    Motorcyclist mag reports a 12.06 corrected quarter mile (test session weather corrected to sea-level conditions of 59 degrees F and 29.92" of mercury).

    I thought I saw a high 3.something 0-60 figure in another mag, but don't recall which. If I stumble on it, I'll post it.

    I saw guys post this info on other sites:
    * 0-60: 3.76
    * Motorcycle Consumer News March 2006 issue: 0-60 3.16 sec, 0-100 10.53 sec, 1/4 mi. 11.71 at 106.04 mph, Top Speed measured was 126 mph. MPG 68/61.8/65.3 for High/Low/Average (seems optimistic to me)

    I hit 130 a few days ago and I was only at 9500rpm. this bikes a lot faster than 126 and Im averaging about 43MPG, even when I dont ride it hard.

    at 120 im at 10,000rpm, and there wasnt a whole lot left, why would your rpm be diff than mine, did some bike come w/diff. sprockets or something? also, even when i ride hard i get 50mpg at worst

    speedo error is an old argument. most bikes come with a speedo error of about 5-10%. The only way to truely tell your speed is to buy a radar/laser gun and get clocked. or just speed all the time at 100mph and when you get pulled over ask the cop how fast you were actually going. then work out the percentage error from there.

    That 1/4 mile seems a bit faster than I expected but whatever, I think Kawi made a good move with this bike and will sell quite a few. As far as the top speed goes I had a Katana 600 that pegged the speedo past 160 with ease. Actual speed was much less I'm sure. I try and find the radar signs that display your speed when you pass them and calibrate from there.

    My Katana 600 topped out at 148. With stock gearing, but a ton of mods. I got clocked at that speed, so I'm sure. I think the speedo read around 155.

    That was 10 years ago, I have no idea what my 650r tops out at.


    When people ask me how fast it goes I tell them pretty damn fast.
    When they ask what the top speed is, I tell them when I let go of the throttle.


    Honestly though, I've only had it to 110, and that was fine for me.

    i just read a thred it says top speed is 147 http://www.topspeed.com/motorcycles/...0r-ar1882.html

    a cool article with cool pictures too

    I am in the military and they always have the radar deals up, Today I drove by and it said I was going like 4 or 5 miles per hour under what the spedo was at. Somtimes i keep that in mind when the A holes are riding me back side I always speed up and run about 10mph over.

    Just ordered some grab bars and the two brothers exhuast ooh and maintenance manual. has anyone heard of KNN making a airfilter yet?

    I think my exhaust is too loud, i hope i don't get pulled over for exessive noise. then i found out they can also give you a ticket for not having a "spark arrester" ??? i noticed its just a straight pipe with no baffles.

    Hey all,

    Some questions about high-speed stability and freeway riding..

    I braved the freeway for the first time tonight, and was averaging about 70mph, and the wind took a lot of getting used to - I could really feel it. My friends say you get used to it.
    The bike did drift a bit from a slight crosswind, but that was easily correctable, but there did seem to be a bit of a shaky feeling in the front end. Tire pressures are fine, I checked them today - could it be me / the stock handlebars? I'm riding tucked down, laying on the tank, and tucking my elbows in.. and trying to relax. If you tell me it's the stock handlebars being so high up I'd believe you - but I'm not quite ready to switch them out yet.
    Also, could it be me? I'm not exactly small (5'11", 270ish) and I have pretty broad shoulders.. From what I've read/seen on here so far, y'all are some skinny guys..

    Granted, last night was my first experience on the freeway, and tonight was my first freeway ride with some distance to cover (about 25 total miles round trip), so I am still kinda new to the experience.. I did get up to about 85-90 at some points, and the wind was hammering me.

    Thanks in advance.

    - C

    Yeah, spark arrestor, lol. That's normally only a problem with offroad vehicle catching the woods on fire, but ok...
    I'm told we have an oem high flow foam filter, but I haven't looked yet. I'm sure K/N will have something very soon. I'm looking forward to trying some velocity stacks myself, I hear it might help the powerband not taper off so quickly.

    yeah i thought that too about the off road stuff...but my buddy told me he got pulled over for straight pipes and the cop ran his "stick" down the exhuast and gave him a ticket for not having a baffle or somthin...
    I read the maintenance manual, says you gotta take off the gas tank to get to the air filter. The airfilter looks cheap , its moreless a square screen , recommends you wash it if you go through a rain storm, I did, but don't have time to take the gas tank off this week.
