What's your top speed.

I'm trying to figure out what the top speed of my stock 2008 650 should be. I'm only getting about 30mph, but is going into the shop for a tune up. It's getting the carb checked. I put a new air filter on yesterday, today it's a new spark plug. And oil change after the mechanic looks at it. I'm no mechanic, just the basics for me, what should the mechanic check?

Are you hitting the rev limiter when you're topping out? You should get 45 at least. How many miles are on the rig? If your belt is worn you would have less top end.

Top speed here ... somewhere north of 71 that's when I figured out it wasn't meant to go much faster , lil squirrelly at that speed on higher pressure knobbies

sorry had to needle you single cylinder guys LOL

MM ... yup oh and it really is squirrelly up there , that link must be a younger man than me without shrunken up balls LOL

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us
