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

Just went out and hit a flat, straight stretch next to my friends Yamaha FZ1. He kept pointing up and too the right every so often and I thought he was saying pull over so I would back off and then catch back up. Turns out he was pointing at the 40mph speed limit signs. He told me when we stopped we were steady at 40mph sometimes a touch over or a touch under but pretty much spot on. I just found my old Garmin Edge 305 and have it charging so I can back it up with the GPS. The 700c wheels with 35c tires give a taller gear ratio than 26s but I feel pretty good for hitting 40 on a 44 tooth rear and my first motor build still on th stock pipe and carb with mods.
