I have been thinking here lately about how does the engine size affect RPMS at 60mph. I want people to post up what their bikes rev at when doing 60 and explain the bike. Year, Engine CC, Make, Model. ETC If your bike is stock, please state it and if its not stock, state the upgrades that make the bike rev higher or lower than normal. I just want to tickle my fansy about engine revs and different bikes. Ill start off with mine.

2006 Ninja 2006 STOCK 60mph=7300 rpm.

1991 Ninja ZX11C Upgraded engine, jet kit, big bore kit. stock sprockets. 60mph=3700rpm

2006 Ninja 250
Gearing changed from stock 14/45 to 15/42
Kenda K671 tires front is 100/90-16.

60 mph : 6500 RPM's, the speedo seems to be pretty accurate according to the Radar trailers on the side of the road(I love making them blink, and then the blue and red lights on the trailer flash):evil:

This is pretty cool for Ninja 250's Ninja 250 Speed Calculator
Ive heard it had something to do with letting you think you are going faster than you really are. Not sure if digital speedos are more accurate. Every bike I've owned had analogs.
