Really good way to die on these bikes.......I wouldn't open the throttle like that too much. If you don't have a forkbrace or steering stabilizer, you may want to get one. You will rarely hear of folks on this site, that see what these bikes will do.....just too much unstable at high speeds.

I've been about 130 in 4th, an unplanned event, whacked it open to pass a string of cars, as I went past the last car and rolled off, I saw 13x on my GPS

even with my caribou cases, no stabilizer, no fork brace, I noticed no instability

I'm told that 5th and 6th are electronicly resticted and 4th is pretty much as fast as you can go, gets up there pretty quick too, in the 2˝ years I've had my Vee, I think its the only time I ever went more than a couple mph above a ton

"accidentily" indicated 110mph ( probably actually 100mph ) for a couple of miles on an empty stretch of interstate. i didn't notice any instability at all.

Mine was stable to an indicated 118mph. At 119mph, it started a head shake that turned into a tank slapper that spit me off. Especially if not running a fork brace and steering stabilizer, your bike can can be closer to disaster at those speeds than you can imagine. Luggage especially can make a shake become uncontrollable in a hurry.

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

got up to an indicated 190kph with the oem trialwings on my dl650k5. Still had some juice left but wasnt comfortable at that speed. Bike was shaking a little. Would like to try it again with my new pirelli scorpions.

the yamaha yzf-r1 i had seemed to be just getting into its powerband at this speed, very different bike, scary fast.
