BUSA limiter.

Got a quick question, the stock govener on a new Busa is 186mph, right? I hit 180mph last night coming home from the local track. I wanted to go faster but i didn't know what would happen when i hit the limiter, would fuel cut off, would the bike shut down, ect. So my question is what happens when you hit the limiter? I was also told the a TRE would allow the bike to go as fast as the motor would let it? Is this true?

If it's anything like the limiter in my old car, you just hit a point where it won't accelerate any more. It might bounce a little, like hitting the rev limiter.

it may, or may not be like what I've experienced in GM trucks, hit a certain speed, and the ignition system cuts off for a second and it slows down, then starts up again, and it does the same thing again. quite annoying to me.

i just wanted to make sure that if i hit 186 it doesn't jolt me off, or throw off my balance. Going 186+, i smallest thing would cause me to have a bad day.

Its not that violent... it just stops you... you'll be pullin and it will just stop pulling... no fuel cut off, or RPM kill or anything like that. Go ahead hit it! I use to all the time on my 9R!

I didn't know they had speed limiters. I would assume a tach limiter.

EVERY Bike is limited to 186mph. (obviously all 900s/1000s+ is all it applies to)
as per a "gentlemens law" that went into effect a while back.

the busa is NOT tached out at 186mph....electronic limiter....just like in BMW/Mercedes are all electronically limited to 155mph.

ECU adjustment will get rid of that limiter....stock busa is good for 200+mph i believe.

The TRE will unlock some power and do away with speed limiter.

thanks jeeps, i was talking to my friend that rides a new ZX-14. His last bike was a hayabusa and he was telling me that with a TRE, some slip-on's and a power commander you could see 200+ very easy.

Most new bikes are limited in power at the bottom of rpm range to make them more rideable. All are limited on top speed from the factory. With a TRE, Gpack or the like. You bypass the factory limits. Hence the race only application warning on the package.

That was more a question of why go 200mph+

Mainly Just b/c i can. I would only like to do it once to say i have done it, a personal goal/challange. Not everyone wants or would ever do it, But a small few would/will.

I know I have been close a few times. Now with current gearing. I would be lucky to hit the 186 mark (real speed) It scares the h3ll out of every time and that helps keep me from doing it more often.

Well there is always the real (correct speed) vs the indicated speed
