top speed limiter

I tuned a breakout using the screaming eagle street interface and on the dyno the bike will only pull to 114 mph. which it reaches at 5700 rpm's in 4th gear.

I did a couple searches and can not find any threads on this which I find surprising.


any one have any insight if this is normal and if it can be disabled

thanks

Why are you dynoing in 4th gear?


And there is no "speed limiter" on Harleys.

There is a rev limiter. It helps to keep people from blowing up their motors.

You should get proper knowledge of the machine your supposedly dyno tuning. Good way too cost yourself a ton of money.

Now go to FNG section and introduce yourself.

These guys don't know what they are talking about amigo. Especially that Schmidty character. Hell I think he's a retired dentist. Here's what you do:

We are talking about a breakout right? Remove the seat, then remove the gas tank. Next loosen the bolts on the rear fender (DO NOT REMOVE THE FENDER!). Pull your headlight then you will find the top speed limiter button somewhere between the headlight & rear fender.


Geez fellas, can't believe you were not more helpful!


Good luck amigo!

So you tried to go past 114 in first gear? Really?

How fast were you expecting the bike to be?

BTW, it probably would never make the same speed on the road that it does on the dyno. With no air to move through, you're just spinning a wheel.
