Most I've seen out of mine is 118 on glare ice. Add some snow and it's tough to get her over 110. The sled is capapable of more with the right gearing and clutch set up but unless you only travel in straight lines leave it alone.

Was that track in Queensville? just south of Keswick?
If so I was there on Saturday around 4pm there was one mach that was way fast.
He said he had $25 000 in the engine alone, and would run around 120mph in 500ft

A few thing's to keep in mind,I have found the speedo to be out by 6-7 mph compared to the GPS speed.I was a little disapointed with the top end of mine also,about 103 on GPS with 144 stud's with me riding it(245 lbs.)If you could put out of mind the lack of top end,you still have a better 800 than anything else out there.Was riding with a friend this weekend on an F-7 sno-pro and his top end was no better than mine and the thing did not seem to handle well for him.Another buddy on a 02 MXZ 700 was top ending all of us( 2-04 800 H.O,RX-1,F-7,04 600SDI).

Great pictures. We sure did have a blast and do this almost every weekend so if you are ever around the bottom end of Cooks Bay we are out there having fun. Come and join us.

Synns Rev is perhaps the fastest Rev I have radared. It really cooks. Many many Mach Z's and my friends from US always got them working good. John and Doug EMANN Racing are great tuners and have great friends that like to have fun. Last year when we - radarruns.com - put on the Bass Lake Radar Run they won many classes including bringing there Mach Z triple 800 with a turbo that went 140 mph. Never can go wrong having them do work for your sled as I witnessed driving the old yeller triple Mach Z with pipes and a clean up running 127.5 in 2000 feet.

Not going to be out this weekend but next weekend for sure. John and Doug try not to lock the keys in the truck next time.

I saw 104 and 102 MPH on my GPS on a 2005 GSX 500SS, they can rock for sure. Coming the opposite way I could only coax 98 MPH out of her. Speedo was around the 110 mark.

I saw 104 out of mine as well. I rode my buddies 800 H.O i had it up to 115, but he has a summit head on it, and its tuned very well carbs have work done too, it was the dealers old sled and he has some time in it.

I'm going to say this again, do not rely on yur gps for top speed, use radar. My gps stated that I was going 132mph on my 03.5 rev 800. There are multiple occassions I know it is wrong. It once stated that I was doing 93 on a road and my speedo showed 112. They are not accurate enough to say "this is how fast I went". I now take gps max speed like a grain of salt. And no its not my gps, as a buddy I ride with also agrees on his being inaccurate. I have a Garmin Legend.

That sounds strange to me, is there alot transmitter towers or something around, I have found them to be quite accurate, I've never seen any bizzarr 130+mph readings.
That 93 on GPS and 112 on the speedo is very likely if you are not studded.
Radar guns can be out too, they need to be "tuned".
