So he asks "what have you gotten it up to?" I tell him the truth.. 162mph

Speedo showed 163 with stock gearing. Had 170+ since and hit the limiter in 6th with +3 in the rear.

Obviously no-one's doing more than about 155 (if that) real world on one of these bikes whatever the speedo says.

On the clocks I've had 165mph.

Like Alex says though, it'll more than likely be about 155mph.

~15k rpm (6th gear obviously), indicated was 180mph, based on my math and the gearing calculator, that should be 167mph

Up the front straight @ Road America

just pass the 175 mark on the clocks down a hill with a tail wind just 2 days ago. had the camera on at the time to. it is on a track with cars coming the other way:devious

i would love to know the actual speed and would be surprised if it would be over 155. i am still on stock gearing.

158 on a return trip from riding with friends on back country highways in Kansas. I was amazed at how quickly it pushed up to that speed in sixth. Truely amazing machines these 600s.

go to somewhere like Gearing Commander: Motorcycle Speed, RPM, Chain & Sprockets Calculator and plug in the information. You will see what your speed is according to your rpm. The problem is most tachs are off from actual rpm on the bike. Some a little, some quite a bit. A data logger with a crank sensor will get you spot on. You will be much closer than the speedo though.

I just am not that concerned with the top speed of this bike or how fast I have truely gone on it I enjoy lower speeds and twisties. But congratulations on your speed records landspeedr. It must feel pretty good to get that kind of speed out of a 650.
