hey cyber sledders
do you think it is possible for a yamaha 540 fan SRV bored out to a 600, that hasnt been taken care of for years can do 100 mph?
theres a dumb guy i know who thinks that it will beat me. he bored it himself.
when he wasnt looking i pulled his speedo cable out and it was ground off and broken.
death to robert
victory to F5

I had an '88 SRV with a Reichards dual Mikuni 38 MM flatslide kit, Bender porting, Cat clutches and a PSI pipe. It would do just a tad over 100, but was VERY quick off the line. It was also well maintained.
Your "buddys" SRV probably has 2 chances of hitting 100: slim and none. Your F5 should make trail meat out of it.

Sounds like your bud does a lot of BRAG RACING. Could an SRV do it? why not. Could HIS? doubt it. 100 seems to be a landmark. Many think they can do it. Most don't. Sounds like he may be riding beyond his limits trying just from the way you talk about him. Be careful with clowns like him.

Yeah, Freeze you said it. I used to have one of those too. Not a bad sled, but they were VERY generous with the speedo.
A picture is worth a thousand words.

100 mph ground speed, not gonna happen.
90 mph ground speed, more likely.

Ground speed and Speedo speed are two different animals.
