My front gear is 14T ( i dont know if this is the stock ) and the back one is the stock one ...
My top Speed is 115km/h sometimes 120km/h max on declivity road on 5th gear ...
6th gear doesnt give more speed , it drops top speed approximately 5km .
Front & Back Gear Are in good condition , tomorrow iam going to change the chain ( a friend of me told me it needs change ) ...

Is this normal? can a chain affect top speed?

71 -75 mph in 5th you've got it on the rev limiter and with nothing more in 6th you've got a problem, don't bother changing the chain get someone to look at the bike it looks like you may have a problem with the gearbox because 6th gear should put you up to about 80mph (130km/h).

Have had 86mph out of mine, twice and that was about 10k rpms, (wouldn't go higher)
But, lately I get somewhere around 79-81mph... Think it's running a bit rich, and thus limits the revs!
Will be fixed soon enough though.

But that is IF he reaches the limiter in 6th!

86mph off limiter cant get any more than that with out change sprockets or 182 kit and sounds like you have a problem if 6th is do anything as it does but slower than any of the other gears

I noticed top gear to be a bit of a waste to be honest, there is no drive in it, it's grand for cruising at the same speed without it screaming its nuts off, but as for gaining more speed I never found it effective

I never really bothered watching it lol, I guess the few times it hit limiter on motorway it had creeped up a bit more :p
