No offense, but...........WTF is with you guys?!? Go out with a f*****g GPS and be done with it!

Anyone?

I'll be doing it as soon as I get mine (hopefully Thurday)and it's broken in.

I'm predicting 155mph with the 2.75.

You have to post a picture of the GPS reading then for us to believe you.

Good one..."post a picture of the GPS reading then for us to believe you" with a SCTA slip...reminds me of a research dive..we had a bet who would do the deepest transect..prize was of course a 6 pack...he went in...I moved the dive boat to deep water...put a dive computer in a mesh bag and lowered to the bottom...told him the truth after I drank the 6 pack...

Who really gives a Flying ..... the top speed within +/- 10 mph? Geez if it is too small, live with it...more important are the "Grins Per Hour"

I agree completely - I just got rid of a big CBR for that reason, it was like having a really really good refrigerator. Unbelievably fast and utterly reliable, yes, but it put me off a little knowing that if something happened to it I could get another one in 10 minutes.

Is my R12S a racer on the street? No, is it a sport touring bike, no again - but it's a seriously fast, somewhat rarely seen beautiful bike that thrills me when I ride it, and I've been riding for about 50 years. All this facination with top speed just confuses me - so stop it. And concentrate on something more important. Like getting those new Rhemus pipes in stock. And maybe some cheap track-day bodywork.

zx9rmal.........and other lucky brothers.

Just so you know. If you have the 2.75 standard rear end your bike will be running 150.75 at 8400 RPMs (red line) and 157.931 at 8800 RPMs (rev limiter). Mine pulls right on into the red zone with the higher rear end..............so you guys should be able to bump the rev limiter with no problem. Have fun because it does not take a very long straight to reach the top in.........nothing like our old R11S units where we needed to pack a box lunch to snack on while waiting for it to get to its 145.

Mal......look for some roads around Trenton, Bell, Lebanon Station to Williston or even Fla. 100 running west out of San Mateo. Safer is further north toward Pinetta, Jennings, ect.

Now that's funny. I had two of the 1100s and both would red line high gear...when I had a few miles of open road. You just sat there 138, 139, 140...152 indicated. Add a Ztechnik...same thing, add a Remus...same thing. Getting up to 120 or so wasn't bad but pushing it over 140 took some time.

You are 100% correct in how much faster the 1200 gets there. No contest although I've only had mine an indicated 145 it was on a stretch of road *much* shorter. I'm still amazed at 140 how much you can still feel the bike accelerating.

It's really a different machine. I've got a stretch of road in Nevada that will be perfect for running a top end check provided no one is in front of me.

Funny, can you get to 150 carefully??

Turnerm, My Gosh! not you to! A perfectly tuned, carefully broken in, dead stock, 100% synthetic oiled, R11S will run a honest 145.........period. It just takes it a while to get there. Of course you live in conn..........no roads that are really safe for this sort of trial. You are pulling our legs.............you know your R12S will run........and so will its older brother. It just takes the R11S more time to red line than it younger, tighter wound, kid brother.

Just trying to put some fuel on the fire.
The only time I ran it fast was on the straights on a track. Not enough time I guess, but only hit 130.

it's the bags that slow down the R1100S.

I saw an indicated 155MPH+ a couple of times on my old R1100S - it had a Vanderlinde pipe + Chip, Lennie's Induct and SJ Powerfilter during these high speed runs. Given the speedo error it was def. south of 150, but indicated north of 155. Anyway. I have no doubt that if my 1100S would run that the 1200S has got to have some juice on the top end. When I test rode the 1200 I hit an easy 120 in 5th gear with room to go. Fast bike, but not the freight train the K1200S was when I test rode that beast. Whoa.

Man, the R1100S goes over 150?

Wow. By the end of this thread, someone will claim that the R1200C cruiser breaks the sound barrier.

I got mine up over 170 mph late last night. It was pitch black and I was navigating by the moon and stars.
