I have a feeling people that makes those claims just look at how hight the speedometer reads and think the bike can hit that. I took a friend of mine (who thinks he knows alot about bikes, but doesn't, doesn't even ride) to a local dealer and looked at a used bike. The speedometer was a dial that read up to 180 mph.... and he goes "dude, look at this one, it goes 180!!!" It was some mid-90's kawasaki 600. I just stood there and lol'd.

LOL, I had an old Honda CB750 with a speedo that went to 160mph...there was no way that bike would get anywhere near that speed though. ;D

Old tiburons are hideous, I kinda like mine, it's an 03.

Since our speedometers are digital, and the first digit is a 2, we can say the SV's can do 299 mph.

What is a "full system check" and why does it cost $225?

If the above is true, my Mustang hits max speed (140) well before I'm done with 4th gear. I would blame it on the Aero, not the motor. At 140 you're floatin'! Scare factor sucks!

(hit 4th at 115mph)
