If you think you've gone 100+ mph on a C50 Suzuki...... You're living in a dream world.
I somehow managed to touch 100 (indicated) on my C50. It was really 88mph and it was wound completely out.If you think you've gone 100+ mph on a C50 Suzuki...... You're living in a dream world.
Yup, I couldn't hold 80MPH traffic in Florida on the C50. It probably did an honest but very scary 85MPH. I seriously doubt my C50 could make it to 90MPH. On a hot day with no wind, it struggled at Florida Interstate speeds. It was fine up to 65MPH, after that it got a bit scary.
How fast will a VL 800 go, I don't wont to here a lot I think it will or it should go, I have a 2003 VL800, Anniversary edition, 11,300 miles, I run Mobil V-twin oil, with factory wind shield & Bags, I weigh 200# I know for a fact the speedometer is 5 mph fast at 70 mph, it tops out at 95 mph (Indicated) on level ground normal wind, I have debaffeled pipes, K &N air filter, drilled air cleaner cover (4) 3/4 holes along the bottom, rejeted carb, Jet size is a #.059 drill, metering rod has 3 washers under it, I run mid range fuel, I don't know what the octane is. It seems to have good all around performance, idle, mid-rang-pulls good from 40 mph in 5th gear. Best mileage is 48.9 on the road, 36 around town. I'm a retired auto teacher so I understand how thing should work. some people claim 110 mph, do I need to find a good mechanic??
I believe I still have the Volusia speed record. The trick is to lighten the bike... remove the fenders... that fake swing arm removal is good for an extra 5bhp. I have out run FBI helicopters and crop dusters and jealous husbands in Alfa Romeos...With a few minor mods, I have had my Volusia up to 140 MPH on a stretch of Runway in Robbins Ga where they used to land SR-71s... it was night, though and my clocker, my girlfriend, moved back to Canada to continue her career in pornography.
I have beaten Valentino Rossi commemorative R1s in drag races and once out ran a Lamborghini Gallardo through a set of cones with my Volusia... unfortunately, it killed me, where I immediately was sent to Hell where the devil rode a Harley Davidson that ran at 100 all day. And the only motorcycle shops would only sell you bikes if you paid to have magic cams installed.
I did get better.
