Stock gearing and a 200/50 tire close to 90 in first, 120 or so in second, didn't pay attention after that

-1 front, stock on rear with a 190/50 rear tire, 176.5 GPS in 6th on rev limiter....

It will vary depending on gearing, tire height and if the rev limiter has been extended...

My 10R was the same way, 92 in first... -1/ made it better in the tight stuff.

RIP Pigpen2000... we'll ride again soon!!
