    Front's rated at W, 168mph, rear's rated at V 149mph or (V) >149mph depending where you believe the data from.

    There are NO tires rated at the top speed of modern liter bikes or the top speed of carpenter rockets.

    Holy $hit!
    Best I ever did was pegged (180mph) at 176mph on police radar, with my 1987 900 Ninja.
    It was tapped out and you haven't even used your last gear yet?!?!?

    That's correct. I was climbing a pretty tall bridge and knew I needed to let off before I hit the top. It was still pulling really hard too.
