My stock bike with 3500 miles on the odo indicated 144 on my GPS at about 8200 rpm (maybe 8300, I only quickly glanced at the tach). This was with an almost worn out ContiSportAttack 190/50-17.

Theoretically, with a new tire measuring ~78 inches circumference, and "if" the bike can pull redline (8500 rpm), the max speed computes to 154-155 mph.

What is the optional rear ratio that some bikes have?
