    Harleys are not speed restricted. The rev limiter kicks in around 5,500 rpm in any gear. You will have to have some $$$ in the engine to get the Ultra to pull those kind of rpm's in 6th. Most Harleys will go faster in 5th than 6th.

    A stage one and down load, will bring the RPM's to 62/63.

    I kind of hate to admit this, but here goes. My 09 ultra with the stage one download was still climbing at 120 when I said enough, so I'm curious too. Anybody else know just how far they'll go?

    Flat, you must be about 200lbs. lighter than me(225),be going down hill,w/50mph tailwind. Not calling you a fibber but my o9 ultra is set up just as yours and if I can get 110 at best if I'm lucky. Really don't need any more. Had a 98FB 80" stock except for HSR42 and EV38 cam and I never had the guts to take it over 140 and it had more than that.
