139.5MPH, i have an excel table for this stuff! :)
if you could rev it out to 13000rpm you would be doing 226.92MPH :))

Chris, do you have a link to the table? I'm trying to figure out gearing on a modified racebike bike.

That table sounds like a handy thing to have around. [I have excel]

what is the theoretical speed for this combo:


2:1 primary's, 6th gear 24/26, final drive 15/38. @ 10,000 rpm

I'm trying to figure out what rear sprocket is the best all 'round choice for tracks with long front straights like VIR and Summit Point.

Thanks,
Sean
