The theoretical top speed issue (again...)
Kerry said 2003-05-21 01:56:04
Just a comment really (repeating something discussed months ago).
Red line in top is not gonna happen mate! I just don´t believe that the GS has a slippery enough shape or enough HP to do it. With standard gearing in 5th it spins at 3200rpm at 100kms. That´s 6400rpm at 200kms or 9600rpm at 300kms.... and that´s territory reserved for very few machines.
That´s how I figure it, anyway, but I´m certainly open to being shown the error of my arithmetic.
