 Post subject: Reflex Top Speed: Not Quite There
PostPosted: Mon Nov 02, 2015 6:17 pm 
So, as you can see from my posts, I got the Reflex back up and running.

Took it for a short jaunt, and ripped on it.

It gets to 60-65 no problem... 65-70 takes a second or two... but 70-75 is about 15 seconds... and 75 is IT... didn't have the pump to go any faster.

I'm running 93 octane, tires are correct pressures. New airfilter, new gas tank, clean pump, clean carb, new plug... 100% gone through.

Could it be something as simple as my air screw? It's behaving like it's running slightly rich... it has more 'oomph' if at 65-70 I let off the throttle a bit, rather than pin it to WOT.

Any other ideas?

That's probably about right in stock form.
Its basically a Big Ruckus engine with slightly fatter jetting.
Some of BRed's threads in the performance section could help.

BTW, the blue looks good!

Thanks for the links!

I think I may change out the weights and do the variator machining to keep it in "low gear" longer and help out on hills.

I'd also like to look at the airbox mod and an exhaust.

I'll probably also do the "hot" valve adjustment for slightly closer gap and more top end.

That should be enough to make me happy. I don't want to screw around too much with the carb... jetting possibly.

Well I retract the whole point of this post....

I got the bike registered and took it to work today... 60 miles 1 way, 40 miles are 30-45mph back roads, 20 miles are 65mph 3-lane highway... (495 up her in Mass)...

Topped it out at 87mph on the highway.
"hilly" parts of the highway would dip to 74-73mph.
Pull from 50-70+ is decent.

Put it this way....

I spent 5% of the time in the slow lane.
75% of the time in the middle lane.
20% of the time IN THE PASSING LANE....


What a BEAST. :) Lol....
