Default Re: Top Speed, 80cc Chinese motor? what is the record?

stupid phone... stock kit with stock sprocket.

but a stock "tuned" engine (ported, jetted, perfect mixture and ideal conditions ) can hit 40, even with a 40t sprocket.

on the right bike, of course. a junky, heavy, wobbly cruiser isn't the right bike.

as i mentioned, my race bike weighs 53lbs. a full fendered cruiser with heavy duty wheels can weigh 80+. that'll wreck your power to weight ratio.

if i ever build a "land speed record" bike (that'd never pass bonneville tech) it'd be an aluminum framed, skinny tired, long, low and lightweight death bullet.
