Hey guys, Just wanted to know where you guys like to cruise. I found 60mph feels good. this would be on a fairly straight 4 lane highway. Speedlimit 55-65, it varies. thoughts? thanks!
Speedo reads about 10% high with the stock sized front tire 100/90-19.How accurate was the bike speedo?
Fuel economy suffers, though. At least it did with mine.Hey 1986vn. This bike is made to cruise at high RPM, iit will cruise at 5000 RPM all day long, that will put you at about 70 miles per hour. The RPM's do seem to be high but that is how the bike is, and why you are always looking for 6th gear to shift too.
This statement by OHC is very accurate IMHO, I ran both the 100 & 110 front tire and a GPS, that is exactly what I figured out...Speedo reads about 10% high with the stock sized front tire 100/90-19.
Just subtract 10% from speedo for close approximation of true speed.
4K rpm gives a true speed of 58 mph, but speedo will read ~64 mph
5K rpm = 72.5 mph
Even though the speedo reads fast, the odometer is reportedly quite accurate.
Changing out the front tire for a larger 110/90-19 will *almost* correct the speedo, but make the odometer read slightly low.
