cbf 1000 top speed
« on: 26 June, 2011, 10:41:31 PM »
ahem, i was in germany on an autobahn :016: and was trying out the top speed and couldnt get more than 125mph showing on the clock, my bikes only done under 5k miles so probably not at its peak yet and only held top whack for a brief period and if i had of sustained top whack may have got a bit more from it, but as in a previous discussion of speedo inacuracy being optomistic by 10% it left the top end listed as 140 mph someway short. has anyone else been on the german autobahn and got a reading close to the listed top speed?

My speedo will indicate approx 145 on suitable roads.
Take my advice or not, I really don't care. I'm just telling you what I think and would do on my bike.

thats quite a difference between your and mine, maybe with a few more miles on it, will loosen it up and give its true potential.

Keep my speed down to low three figures as I find I can't count the daisy's fast enough these days, getting married again has also curbed any previous aspiration for speed.

The best so far is 233km/h - 145mph (this is GPS and Sigma tacho measured). What you can actually get has much to do with conditions, wind, loading, chain adjustment e.t.c.
Generally speaking on my bike up to 205km/h (127mph) (real speed) come fast and from there up you've got to have good conditions and clear roads.

I'm 17 stone and have seen 140 on the speedo ( quite regularly) so i would guess there is something not right with your bike.

I am 15stone ish  :012: and can have 145 on the clock. I was fully loaded with kit on a tour recently and could only hit 135. Givi top box, Kreiga US35 and a Givi screen.....please do not tell the rozzers....
I don't know what your problem is, but i bet it's hard to pronounce...

Mine, no trouble 140mph indicated. 5k on your engine it hasn't settled in yet. It has taken my Alfa ( car) 12k to loosen it off enough to get a ton. now at 14k it feels a lot more lively. give it a bit more time I recon.

I suppose it's an indication of how well your bike is if the top speed is high. But to be honest, it's not really what the Biffer is about. There are of course other bikes that you could get that'll do considerably more. A good turn of speed and acceleration is desirable, but to paraphrase those nice people at Rolls Royce: The CBF1000's performance is adequate.  :001:
