I haven't had mine over 60, and that was with the stock tire size. I haven't figured out the adjustment from running 27" tires (in my head, not sure if the speedo can be recalibrated). I have wondered why the speedo has a "hundreds" place on it though.
Fastest speed my 2002 grizz silver limited every did was the first day
I brought it home.
There was two of us on the wheelier,and yes I know you should not ride double.I have about a 1-1/2 mi road behind my house that is a steady stair stepping incline that creast,s a hill at the 1/2 mi mark.
It was at night and the vic-president of our deer camp was with me as a withness and a passenger that will probably not ride with me again!
We took off from a dead stop with a slow increase of speed up to 25 mph
then I nailed it!The headlights pointed toward the sky like we were trying to
coon hunt then the front end finally leveled back out,and when we creasted that 1/2 mi mark the speed odometer showed 68mph with the stock tires.
My Grizz has about 1400 mi on the odometer now and the top end has fell off to 63 mph with me on it alone.Need to think about getting a new belt to get it back to where it was.
But it will still smoke a 650 praire with a worn belt! heh Heh!
The speedo has 3 digits as it will also display your speed in kilometers:
63 mph = aprox 103 km per hour. Same thing for the odometer / mileage reading.
(for the Canadian Grizzlys) Top speed on mine read 105 kilometers an hour.
Welcome, buddy! What year's your beast? You should start things off right and give us a good ol' ridin' story on one of the other threads ("go anywhere" or "riding stories"). Whaddya say? If not, welcome anyway!
I have had my grizz going 69 on a road out by my house. I didnt have any upgrades, since this was before the bighorns came out. the road was perfectly flat, and im a lighter rider at only 180 pounds. hope to be going faster when i get it jetted, my filter, and dr. d pipe!
