Lighting fires from 80mph? That possible?
At 80mph, if I drop mine down to 5th, I might be able to what I think was 92?, before red line?
I question those numbers because I might have only done it twice ever. But donít quote me on it Matt. Been in a fog since last April. So Iím only about 20% sure.
With my decent stage 1 and the front and rear final drive pulley swap low end is over the top.And mid usually starts to peak at about 85mph. So Iím going based off of that

Using the term "lighting fires" is subjective. To me it's having the ability to authoritatively accelerate, not boil the rear tire like if I had a hot 124" in the bike. I could drop a gear, but I like to just roll on the throttle and pull nicely. That's what I want in top gear and in my experience a finely tuned 95" at 10:1 with the 551's will do it. Right now it's just a very overgeared 88" with stage 1 mods. She'll hold 80, but not do too much more if I roll on the throttle. I personally like seeing my digital speedometer increase in more than single-digit increments. Back in my ute, I had an R1 that went up by 5's (with the front wheel off the ground). When my 107" was working, she'd jump by 3's.

My wife’s 08x bones with just a stage! Goes really nice. Seems like top end has more grunt then the mid. She likes it that way and is very strict about what I’m allowed to do with it.
I don't know how I survived the 80’s and a good part of the 90’s
My last crash was worst of them all. Only one I didn’t walk away from. Actually was twice. Live and learn.

Yea, me too. Back when I got out of the Air Force in the early 00's I apparently had more money than sense and bought that R1. I would regularly see over 150 with it, in a t-shirt and jeans, and sun glasses...

No bad crashes fortunately, but one grounding. Front tire hit a patch of water on a painted arrow in a round-a-bout in Wisconsin on a Sportster. Some boat was draining the bilge on the way home and my front tire found it. Scuffed elbow, that's it. Bike had seen better days tho, speedo hit the curb as the bike spun around on its side.
