Canadians!! What youve got and how fast youve gotten it ;)

Alright lets get down to the nitty gritty. We have all had that moment out on the highway when we figure its time to open up the throttle and see what your baby can do. Thats fairly often for me. But Im not wreckless about it...I dont think.. Anyways.. What are the staggering numbers you guys have hit on your speedos?...

Now Im fairly new on my bike and i dont wanna die just yet. So ive done about 220. And I dont dare do much more than that without proper riding gear.

How bout you guys?

220 what? MPH?
On what?
The 1300 busa and ZX12 only runs 187 from the factory.
I am sure these two are the easiest to tweek but, :
That is friggin flying.

if you want to convert just look at your gauge on the US model bikes...most have both speeds (mph and k/mh) unless you have digital gagues..I don't know if you can switch it over or not. Most cars/trucks have both labeled also. I know my brothers 2000 imported canadian yellow SVS only has k/mh and no mph at all.

Gas...... ..That is rediculously fast.....And i thought 200 was fast...youre goin 300!!..My bike wont even do 300... From what I hear on the specs it tops out at 260...(kms/h)... I cant wait to prove that wrong though ...just gotta get the beast up and running..(still awaiting clutch rebuild kit)....

Musta been a rush

the little sv that could

no huge numbers for me, but getting my naked SV to 120 took some work. Tucked down behind my instrument cluster, going down a slight decline. i think the wind blew with me too.

Ninja... yeah it was crazy fast.... now that I have it geared it and have installed the speedo healer (to calib my speedo)... I can only get it to about 165 roughly... I will wind her out all the way one of these days when I get to it... but 165mph is 265.5418kph That I know it will do, and it is calib to be exact. So it's not off or nothing. If it was off by stock setting that would be about 180mph...

Got a XB9SL the I hit the revlimiter at 215km/h. Here is a conversion I didnt find: mile/gallon (imperial) to liters/100km, take 286 divide it by #liters/100kms you got miles/gallon , take 286 divided per miles/gallon you got liters/100kms.
