I need help !!

So I got a Suzuki GSX-R 600cc a while ago and got in my first accident last week. =\, my dad got me a new bike, same style and he says before I can ride it, I need a speed monitor. Does anyone know where I can get one ?

For say, my dad sets the maximum speed to 60 mph and I can't get past that.

Thanks in advance,
Static

lol this is crazy.


number one whether you go 60 or 160 you can easily die on a motorcycle...

why did you crash? what happened? was the bike insured? How rich is your dad?

Some lady hit me going 20 at the neighboorhood stop, she was drunk though. The bike was pretty damaged, and I just had some burns on my legs. (The engine was pretty hot, and it layed on my leg while i was wearing pants). The bike was insured, but my dad just bought a new one - he owns a pretty well known construction business. Do you know where I can find one though ?

no i've never heard of them...

kinda curious why he wants to limit your speed when a drunk woman hit you while you were doing 20 MPH though... after all you weren't be reckless, and i'm assuming your bike was consider'd totaled?

I've never heard of a speed limiter... (other than the ones put on by the factory)

I honestly don't think they exist... not many people would want to limit their speed... so not much of an after market...


he could always remove your top 4gears!

on gixxer... he'd be goin faster than sixty in second... but his ears would be bleeding if he did it for long.

sorry bout your luck man, but then again your dad just bought you a new bike after you totaled your old one, so Eff off... j/k

have you taken the MSF? if not that'd be a good way to show him you are responsible and riding can be safe. its only a weekend and if you already know what you're doing you'll breeze through it, and may even learn a thing or two.

that and maybe get him to send you to some track days! or Kevin Schwantz's school! it'll teach you more about how to handle a bike than any rev limiter could! and sounds like your dad would be able to afford it

great idea, that'd be much funner than the MSF.

although they usually try to teach you how to go faster at a track ebbs

"son i'm going to send you to the race track, because today i am going to teach you how to be a cautious rider, and to obey the speed limit. Even though a race track is designed to push you to your limits and you'll come back knowing that you can go around corners faster, shift smoother, and ride harder i'm sure although this is the second bike you've been through you'll be responsible"
unless you can see your dad saying the above quote, dont listen to ebbs.

Agreed. Speed had nothing to do with this accident.

All he really needs is a throttle stop, which will, by definition, stop the throttle from going too far. Only problem with this is that it would have to limit your throttle WAY too much to keep you from going over 60MPH. You'd barely be able to twist the throttle.

How old are you?

Surrender the booty, and let me get my hands on that beautiful treasure chest!!

One of these days, I'll actually buy a bike again...
