Notice he said "He CAN hit 125 mph".... He didn't say HOW.... Probably had it loaded in the back of his buddy's pickup truck when he "hit 125"

Dropped it out of an airplane. Rode it off a cliff.

You need to re-program it.

I might be able to get up to 120mph, not going to try it, but can say in 5th gear at 100mph bike is still pulling hard and got lots of throttle left it seems. Dyna Super Glide Custom w/ JIMS 120" w/ other goodies and the bike is a lot stronger than I can handle. Going up some long grades at 80mph or so and adding some throttle will definitely pull you back on the bars. The bike wants to go places I don't need to go.

We have a HO 124"er, in a Softail that belongs to a U.S. Border Patrol Officer.
His words are that his speedo is worthless.
With his 6 spd, he pegs the speedometer in 3rd, and says he does not want to know how fast it will actually run..........

Your bike isn't an Evo with the same mods as the bike in question.

Apples. Oranges.

I could hit 125 mph with a 1978 Aermacchi 250cc if I strapped a Jado pack to it. But we're not talking about that.

I wouldn't ride my FLSTC at 125 mph for all of Solomon's gold.
