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.

I was 45 stock, 52-55 with the Dynatek cdi. About 7800 RPM'S. after the belt and clutch change 40-45 at about 6000 RPMS, still trying to figure what killed my RPM's.

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

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