Those speeds are about mid 4th gear on a Hayabusa if I remember right.

That's pretty damn fast for an un-faired bike. After 100 mph it takes about 30% more horsepower to go another 10 mph on an un-faired motorcycle.

On another note Dr. Flaslight went 155 mph on his naked Dynaglide running alcohol and different cams in the "modified over 1000cc class".

Way to go Dr.

Hairball racing blew up another $50,000.00 motor trying to make the 200 mph club again, oil pump quit.

Good job making those twins go that fast. Pay no attention to those arrogant smarmy Haybusaheads.

You are correct. I meant it was mid 4th gear on a STOCK Hayabusa.
