top speed ,no power on mts 1000sds

1,2,3,4 th gear seems to be very good on power delivery ,can reach easy 8500 rpm
5th gear can t reach top rpm (185 kph)
6 th gear can t reach more than 7200 rpm (195kph)

Valve clearance has been done,fuel filter change ,air filter clean,good compression .
really don t understand how can i fix the problem.

I think you may not have a problem. Those motors have a power curve that starts to drop off after 7K and the high gear up hill is like a big brake dyno.

one of my co-workers is convinced that his Gixxer 1000 can go 205mph, cause that is red line in high gear. just not going to happen

This is why changing your gear ratios is a good idea. Put a 14t sprocket in the front and you will suddenly be able to use all gears effectively. Added bonus - taking off in 1st is easier.

You serious! My VW GTI speedo goes to 180 MPH, I though for sure it should do 180 MPH

I was wondering how fast she'd go. Thanks for letting me know. I've approached 130 and let off (w/ Remus cans). Good to know there's another 10mph left.

Damn. Now I'll have to figure out a way to sneak a 1098 into the garage (without the warden finding out). Mmmmmm.

Or, I could lose another 10# and then she'd go 10 faster, right?

I could save 15 lbs. on my multi with a new exhaust. or I could go on a serious diet and exercise program and loose 35 or so and gain both top speed and acceleration. not to mention saving the moola a new system will cost.
maybe if i get a new speedometer my bike will go faster

Hmm, last week riding, my buddy maxed out his highly blinged multi at 128 on the speedo...guess that's around 115 actual...or so.
