The riding position of a sport bike is way to uncomfortable.Just curious. Why do you want to ride a cruiser so fast? If speed is important, wouldn't a sport bike be a better option?
In the class, big fat cruisers, Strats, Raiders, they're pretty good. 100-110 is no problem. Past that, it's getting silly. I've heard 125-130 but not sure they were stock.The riding position of a sport bike is way to uncomfortable.
95% of my riding is cruising or commuting, but every now and then a guy just has the need to do 110...Or at least I do.
Thanks Larry, that's kind of what I figured.In the class, big fat cruisers, Strats, Raiders, they're pretty good. 100-110 is no problem. Past that, it's getting silly. I've heard 125-130 but not sure they were stock.
They're torque machines, not fast at all, except in relation to other cruisers. You'll be about equal to a stock HD Screaming Eagle. A little better but not much. You'll never lose to a stock SE getting to 100. Well, you might but it won't be the bikes fault.
You're welcome.Thanks Larry, that's kind of what I figured.
not impressed with just 125mph. i get 115mph on my 950 with upgrades. i would think the raider would do 125 stock.On my 09 Raider s with cobra pipes K&N air filter and cobra Fri200 tuner I could get to 125 but you don't want to keep it there for a long period of time. handles ok but any quick manuver and you could be in trouble quick.
That's pretty awesome bevo. As it stands today; what upgrades do you have on your bike (if it's not too much to list)?not impressed with just 125mph. i get 115mph on my 950 with upgrades. i would think the raider would do 125 stock.
Yeah I would agree that something isn't right if that's all you can get. My carbureted 1100 will do better than that.My 2011 950 Tourer tops out at 75; but then again maybe I am not pushing it as hard as I can.
Not if you don't have the horsepower to reach that limit. And the 950 doesn't have the horsepower to reach it's 133 mph rpm (actual) potential. In fourth gear, however, I think you could hit the ceiling with standard mods and have a little left for 5th.General. A stock Raider, or 950, will have the same max speed as a modified Raider, or 950, unless you change the final gearing ir increase the rev limit.
