    You cant "disconnect" it but you could get the Stage 1 download to have raised.
    By the way, the rev. limiter is there for a reason.

    cheers,
    yes, it is there for a reason, but it's not about speeding... but rather having the option....

    ok, so it isn't the rev limiter, is there a speed limiter on a factory fat bob 09??? I was at 160km/h and felt there was a lot of power left in the engine...

    Beg to differ. My stock but ported heads with stock valves and springs in my 95"Deuce, rev limiter set at 6200 rpms (I bump it regularly) and engine is holding up fine. I suppose that if I missed a shift and over revved the engine to >7500, the springs might not be able to keep the lifters on the cam lobes but with springs that would keep the lifters on the cam lobes valve train noise would be louder that I want and the valves would beat up the seats during normal operation.

    The stock springs will work just fine in most streetable builds that produce 100TQ/100HP or thereabouts.
