I'm not exactly sure how fast it will go. I have had it past the 85mph mark on the speedo. I have a larger front tire on it so the speedo should be pretty accurate. Just guessing I think it was about 90mph +/-.

Well, I'm a light weight and I've also changed my sprocket sizes. Both of which factor into top speed but I think the biggest factor is weight. I have removed some weight from the bike and my light body weight is how I can achieve the speeds I get.

Top speed so far was around 85 indicated. That's faster than I need to go, but I wanted to see if she'd do it. Much of top end on a Rebel has to do with shifting technique. It doesn't have the torque to accelerate much in fifth gear.

We weigh about the same and have about the same gearing but I'm guessing my bike weighs in at just under 300lbs.

Mine weighed about 310 pounds new, but I think it has gained about twenty pounds since I quit smoking.

I'm just guessing how much my bike weighs taking into consideration what they say the factory weight is (around 330lbs) and the parts I have removed. I figure I have probably removed at least 30lbs maybe a little more. I could be wrong on the factory weight and it may weigh even less than I figure.

I've had mine to 70 mph. I really don't see any need to go faster. As I get older my choices have been more based on common sense. They didnt build this machine to go that fast safely. Tuck and roll is in my mentality, but at those speeds you just become hamburger. Be smart and ride safe folks.
