Just wondering what the top speed you guys have reached on a non lams Cbr650f is... mine (lams) max’s out at 206klmph curious to see the power difference

I would be interested too.

Theoretical (real) speed in 6th gear with stock sprockets at red line (11400 revs) is about 235 km/h.
Depends of course on power if you can reach that.
The speedometers are typically up to 10 % optimistic.

Haven't found road and traffic conditions here, where I could safely try to reach top-speed.
Doubt if they exist in this country.

Theoretical 151mph,based on gearing.
151 mph is 243 km/h (151 * 1.609344)

Are you sure about that? With stock sprockets?
That number differs from my post "gear speed calculation" in "reviews and information".
Is your result based on higher revs than the red line 11400 maybe?

To the Dutch speed limit, 130km/h, not a km/h faster.

edit:
ok ok I admit, that's not entirely true.
Don't worry, you only start risking your license at 180 km/h on those roads ;).
I was quite hesitant exceeding the speed limit too much in Holland with all the speed cameras.
Luckily it was only half an hour to the nearest Autobahn from where I lived.

Personally, I got rid of my desire to find out on my first bike, when I didn't have multiple children & a wife who depend on me financially 😋

I hit 130mph on a Suzuki Katana. Didn't run out of road, but thoughts of police started nagging me 😁

Jerry,My only fear of riding over here is when someone hits you with their car or truck that they don't
back up quickly and finish the job.No witness,no money to pay out. This happens too often even in my
small town.

242 kmph did a while back. Stock everything. Exaust, tyres, Sprocket
I take it you have CBR? I have Akra exhaust, K&N filter, super unleaded at the time. Interesting how the aerodynamics of the CBR can increase the top speed by ~ 19kph
