suzuki 1989 gsx750f top speed?

i bought a 89 katana 750 2 dayz ago june 10th for 1700 dollars... i read it should top out at 140 to 142ish... well today i took it for a spin and hit 150 on it, and if there wasnt a turn in front of me i coulda gone waayyy faster. are the facts wrong or is my bike just wierd, i estimate (good with gear ratio's and mechanic's) that this bike has a shot at 160 to 165 even to 170, with enough room...

if you have any info hit me up on aim
or if you r from the pittsburgh area n just want to ride - civic91josh

I hope the top speed test isn't going to be a routine adventure, too dangerous and will get yourself in serious trouble if caught.

Probably 150 indicated (which is ridiculous anywhere but on the track). Your speedo is, more than likely, incorrect.
