    Default top speed of the Ryker 900

    I had a little problem with the height of the higher shield of my large Can-Am Delux fairing - so I cutted it 2,5 inch, my helmet began to wiggle on higher speeds, now its OK. as you see the Ryker drives absolutely calmly and stably (German Autobahn .. ) the "limiter" starts at 8.240 RPMs .. -
    (but my old Spyder RS/GS was really a little faster )

    172 Kmh = 107 miles per hour !!

    Please stick with going to the track or the autobahn for your high speed runs.

    I'm thinking if he did the run on the autobahn, it was likely OK..

    Nothing wrong with some highspeed running while out riding. I do it quite often.

    Chris, the ultimate test is to see what the top speed is when SHE is sitting behind you.

    Nice! I've been up at 160 kmh, acceleration is still good, so with some adjustments/tuning to the CVT a higher top speed should be possible at least from Power perspective. Anyone know what parts are available to tune the CVT? I'd figure a lot of people driving snowmobiles have been tuning their CVTs for many years to adjust the "gearing" and "shifting behaviour".
    170 top speed is enough for me, but the curious side of me would love to know what can be done!

    100 MPH at 7600 RPM is less than max HP RPMs (82 HP @ 8,000 RPMs)

    I have not had the chance to run mine up to see how fast it will go. I've had my 2008 GS to 125 mph on the speedo. Actual speed on both is less, of course, because the speedometer is a lie. The lie gets bigger the faster you go. But I can tell you that the size of your windshield is a big factor in your top speed capabilities. Fuel mileage will also suffer as the windshield gets bigger.

    105 mph is where mine tops out. The speedo fluctuates between 105 and 106mph. I ran it wide open for a good distance and that was all it had in sport mode. My buddy on his BMW ran side by side with me. My speedo was off 2mph compared to his gps.

    ~~~i did once in 2020. All i could think about holding onto that speed (WOT) was I definitely do not want to experience falling off doing the ton. Once was enough for me

    I have found that at about 100 mph my exhaust port snaps shut; regardless of what vehicle I am piloting.

    I've opened up the throttle just to see how fast it goes and can confirm it does 100 mph. lol Didn't go any faster than that.

    I usually travel highway speeds 60-75 mph and it's a gas pig at those speeds.

    A properly run-in 900 is capable of 108 MPH at ~8200 RPMs (no grade, no wind, elevation ~2,500 feet)
    The decision between 600 and 900 should be based upon type of use.
    I test rode a 600 when deciding to purchase a Ryker and expected it to be fine around the city, cruising level freeways.
    However, a 900 may have better resale value (higher % of purchase price) and is better for
    a. high speed passing
    b. pulling long grades

    The Ryker 600 is 50 HP @ 7300, idle 1100 RPM, 12:1 comp
    The Ryker 900 is 82 HP @ 8000, idle 850 RPM, 11:1 comp

    The bottom line is a 600 has a great price point and satisfaction likely based upon how it will be used: Great commuter.

    No regrets buying a Ryker. Review in this link

    https://www.spyderlovers.com/forums/...rt#post1546601

    Looking back, the main issues were high RPMs, fuel economy, belt life and dodging potholes with a triple track. Cornering was fantastic!

    My current ride is a 900 cc parallel twin, 8 valves, liquid cooled.
    Averages 61 MPG. Sometimes over 70 MPG, but only 55 MPG at 85 MPH+.

    Thanks for the input. I am new to this and trying to learn as much as possible before buying.
    The link was very helpful, you hear so many different things you don't know what to think.
    Thanks again.
    Now to sell my Harley XR1200.
