If you noobs think that 5 more gallons of fuel is going to hinder top speed you are riding the wrong motorbikes. This particular bike went 135 mph with 7 gallons of fuel, full camping gear and a case of tall boys, and if you dont believe me, you've never ridden a 990 KTM, or you weigh waaaaay more than I do, or you just have a fat girlfriend.
I just don't go in to the triple digits I guess being bedridden for five month changed that sweet fuel cell

Feel better now?...........and Brent knows as much about the LC8's as anyone....

135 on the speedo isn't close to 135....

My MOTOZ rear and front are rated for 130KPH.
They were fine at 200 for a few min with no problems.
