What would be the top speed on an 01 R6 bone stock? How about with 15 tooth front sprocket. The reason I ask is because some assclown is trying to tell me that his 01 R6 will go 180mph. I had to raise the BS flag on this one. I estimated that an R6 will go about 155 for a top speed. Any input from you R6 owners. :help:

You are the one who said you just bought it and went 162 on the way home... don't take offense when someone calls you out on it. :crazy: Heck... I would of gave it to your more even... saying you were probably in a t-shirt and shorts too right? :rolling: :lol:

162 indicated is probably around 146 or so. Bike speedos are normally around 10% off at top end. So next time you decide to spout off about how fast you are... try talking in REAL MPH instead of indicated. Oh and don't post your faster runs... we don't care how fast you are.... plus we all know that the R6 will only do 157! :lol: :grin: :wink:

My '03 is only off by 3% at 100MPH. It's more accurate than a lot of the bikes I've seen. =) Not trying to be argumentative or anything, just a comment.
