Speed; 29 MPH steady on level ground, moderate incline 24MPH, steep hill it couldn't do it.
I got up to 33MPH going down a hill and had to back it off.
It may be the long intake causing the idle and throttle response issue. I will have to tune it a bit more before I am ready for the ride to work (15 miles).
Overall I am very happy with it.
I suggested the intake as being too long earlier in this thread.......hope you figure it out...
