Default TOP SPEED WITH A 16/38 combination

So i went out to a local dirt strip with my buddies and dragged raced for shits and giggles, i was spinning all the way to mid 4th gear and topping out on 5th hitting rev lmtr. it felt freaking fast, i was wondering how manny MPH could i possibly be going im 110lbs so is not hard to top out the bike

When I weighed 112-119 for wrestling 10 years ago with my 480 Athena with no head or carb work. I was paced on the sand flats once, topped out around 90 Granted it was a Fullsize Bronco with paddles, so the speedo was probably off some. Honestly you would not know how fast exactly you would be going unless you did the same as I did.

I had my 480 efi on the strip last year. I think it was 16/35 gearing. 4th gear topped out crossing the line was 85 I believe

Here you go, thats the chart I found on here. Sprocket/cdi/tire Size/top Speed Although it does not list a 16t if youre running 18s id guess like 76?

The efi bikes have larger primary. So with 16/35 sprockets reaching 85 in 4th. I don't think 100 isn't realistic for a carb, with the righ motor/fearing/tire sizes.

I use a hand held GPS or the app. Both work good but the GPS is a little more accurate
