Its an old post but i easily hit 255kmh even with topcase. The trick is engine oil. I was usin motul 5100 and hardly reaching 235kmh.after switching to motul 7100. My Bike easily climbs to 255 and still wants to go but rev limit doesnt allow it to. I suggest 7100 and you will notice the difference

I’m sure a Mk1 once did 25000mph, but sadly it burnt up on re-entry! (Ok, so it’s a slow news day!)

Interesting.  Not sure how you saw 159mph on the clock though.  I've had 154mph on the clock of a Mk2, but as soon as it hit 155mph a light flashes on the warning pannel (didn't get time to see which one, but possible Engine Management) and the speed limiter kicked in.  That translated to 141mph on the GPS.  I'm 13.5 Stone and bike is standard except for GPS aftermarket exhaust.

It was definately the speed limiter kicking in, as Revs were just under 9,500rpm, and it will normally rev up to 11,000 rpm in 5th, if you really want it to, so it wasn't the Rev limiter.
