Speed Limiter

Do any of the tunes remove the speed limiter and if so, what is the top speed?

Most dealer flash tunes remove the limiter and some handheld flashes do.

Piggybacks do not for obvious reasons.

My R use to tap out at 250km and like I said now I've been up and past the 160 mph

And the fastest I've been is 280km with lots of pedal left

Maybe the Canadian ones are governed differently

100% right

It would of had a better top end if they would add a 7th gear or made the 6th a longer ratio to pull higher and lower the rpms. Imo it already hovers high as it is at 80mph
