110on an F5??? wow im impressed. Say what you want man but my F5 only goes 93-95 on the digital speedo. It ran right with a 2002MXZ600 the whole way down about .75mile.

Havent taken it to a radar run but im sure it will get about the same.

i actually used to own a 99 zr 500 efi...said 97 mph on the speedo..but we got a radar gun from my friend(hes a cop) and we used it..the zr got going exactly 87 mph in 3/4 of a mile..so i highly believe your zl 500 will not do over 90..

Save your money and buy a larger motor next time. I have been down that road and it is not cheap! V force reeds 2-3 mph gain, but better throttle response, 200 to 300 bucks. I have found a hundred bucks per one mph. When you start screwing around with your engine you are only inviting reliability problems. The zl 5 goes plenty fast for it's size don't try to make it keep up with the big boys. I always say it is easier to ride a bigsled than a small one because they cannot leave you on staightaways and make you ride over your head to keep up!jmo

after market pipe..reeds....engine kit-black magic have some nice engine kits to pump your zl 500 right up to a 680, 711, and a 780 cc machine..the racing 711 kit has about 150 horsepower..the trial version has 140...either way it'll be way faster...the kits are expensive..like 2-3 grand...for that money you could just sell the zl and buy a f6 or an f7...
