Top Speed Of 13' 550??

Just curious, what is the approximate speed of the 13' 550??? I was buzzing down my street and I hit about 35-40MPH tops...

Any feedback folks??

Thanks in advance!

Kazoo

I have the same machine and 62 mph is the best I have gotten yet. My 500 would do about 65 so I think it may take a little more time.

I let off the throttle at 65mph on my 850 with 27" Black Diamonds. It had more in it, I just dont need to find out how much more.

Kazoo take a little more time to break it in before trying a top end run. For the first 20-25 hours keep your bike at a moderate pace. Once you get over 10 hrs start to push it a little more and more each time untill you hit about 20 hours. Then open it up to what you want to. You want to make sure everything including your trans, diffs, etc.. get broken in properly. Once broken in a 550 should run in between 55-65mph.

Pretty sure we are talking about a 550xp... However I am pissing my pants with excitement that my Nissan Titan will do 120mph with 33/12/50x17's
