top speed i usually find people think is lower than it is on ANY vehicle.
my ke100 forums say 45mph top speed ive had it up to 65
hyosung gv650 say 130 ive had it up to 140 (track)
honda CB400 says 85 ive had it to 91
honda civic (not mine i drive a jag) says 118 ive had one to 125.
want to top out my jag but its too fast lol they say it tops out at like 155 but ive never had it up above 120.(1994 xj6)
Hey thanks alot,
The quality isint good enough to count the teeth but I enlarged the image and used a program to find the radii of both gears. The ratio comes out to be 5 to one. If you want to know that means at your engines 7000 RPM Redline the drive sprocket should be rotating at 1400 RPM you can use this to calculate your top speed according to the engine so you dont burn it out going down hills. If anyone can check that for me thatd be great.
I don't know if it is right, but always worked for me. An old "wrench" told me the rule of thumb was to keep any engine at 3/4s and it would live it's life out as planed. With 44T rear sprocket on a Chinagirl, I find that 19 to 22 MPH seems and feels perfect on flat road. After that, it starts to feel and sound like it is time to change gears. (I have to try a SBP shift kit!)
I have yet to try a 40T as Dax suggested but am absolutely going to soon.
As has been said, it is how it feels to each and some plane old good luck with longevity.
