2014 DL1000 top speed?

Just wondering if anyone has gone beyond the 130mph top speed that I have read about. And if so, what work have you done and what was the top end? Before we get into some sort of safety issue discussion or anything about laws,losing your license etc., thats not what this post is about. Im just curious as to what kind of power and speed can be achieved with the right mods.

Gone 200 km/h (125 mph) on mine and slowed down, didn't want to go more but it had a lot more juice to go.
X-TRE installed as the only engine modification.

A TRE will remove the top speed restriction and allow the bike to go faster than its chassis and aerodynamics were designed to support.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

My speedo has been adjusted to be very accurate (not like the stocker) using a speedo-healer. I've hit 129 on the straight stretch at a local track and that was before I added the TRE but after the cams, exhaust, 4* advancer and such. I don't know what the top speed is and don't really need to know. Very stable, even under hard braking for the corner coming up. Mine is also lowered about 1.5" both ends. Does 114 or so in the quarter mile. No issues. Mine is an '06 though. Not a '14. 40,000 miles. 99 RWHP. I know a guy who does hop up 'Stroms and he can get about 115 RWHP but it's not cheap! 'Stroms are not intended to go too fast. It's just not made for that. Acceleration is fine, but getting over 130 is treading on thin ice with their geometry.
