Default Re: Typical top speed......

If you gear the bike for a top speed of approximately 48 mph and add a hardened washer under each clutch puck stud in the stock clutch to make it engage earlier without preload the stock clutch will work very reliably with negligible wear. Just make sure to try to keep it cool because the heat kills the inductor coils in the magnetos, you can do an ohmmeter test to see if they're ok, per the KTM bible pdf.
