                  Roadstars can get all the way up to 60mph?

                    I know I've had mine there... but, I so take my sweet time anymore... I don't actually know how long it takes. Can 60 be hit in first before the rev-limiter cuts in... when using one of them Dyna 3000 things set at 5,000 RPMs? I've never tried... I can't help it, but it may sound like short-shifting, but since installing Dynas in my R*, I haven't hit the rev-limiter even once since. I must be a wussy!!!

                      I don’t believe I’ve even bumped mine @ 4,250.
                      This high revving society doesn’t seem to understand long stokes.

                      I hit mine once at 4,250, while trying to pass a truck quickly... the extra little bit of time it took to grab the next gear convinced in that instant... to get the Dyna, and never get caught having to throw a quick shift again, when I needed to keep accelerating!

                    No. You can in 2nd tho. You'll hit limit around 35 or 40 in first. 2nd should take you at least to 70.

                      Thanks, I was only curious... I'd probably never actually try, unless I some reason HAD to. I'm an easy rider. At my age, I've nothing left to show or prove, and don't engage in 'high-risk' activities anymore. I prefer to watch others make the fool of themselves... that I used to be!

                        Fact is, I found out where limit was in 1st, 2nd & 3rd on a Dyno. 3rd, BTW hits limit somewhere at or above 100mph.

                    • #13
                      With a 4750 rpm limiter, I can get 38 in first, 62 in second, 89 in third, and 109 in 4th.

                        Don't know of the top off my head. I do know it's not as fast as sport bikes but it is as fast as, if not faster than most sports cars for the first couple hundred feet, after that the higher end cars would walk away from a R*. That said, I just installed an app to test this; I'll post my results after I try it out.

                        If I had to guess, I'd put it in the 4-5 second range. [give or take] It will be interesting to see.

                          More like 5. I swap back and forth between my SV and my Road Star. Not even close, and the SV is not a “high performance” machine.

                            With a 14.0 quarter probably mid to high 6 sec 0-60 with a perfect 1-2 shift....in other words you would get beat by LOTS of cars out there now a days. He'll V6 Camaro and Mustangs run low/mid 13's and some pickups/SUV'S would hang right with the R until 115 mph...at which point they would pull away.

                              At 115 we don't have much left anyway.

                            I can't speak to the accuracy of the app I used but I was consistently getting 4.3 second zero to 60 times. [Best was a 4.2] I'm sure someone without all the gear I have, and who weighs 50 lbs less than me, could get a better time.

                                That chart looks reasonable
