    is there a limiter on the ultras to keep the speed under a 100mph ? and if so can you over ride it

    The limiting factor is the lean conditions set by the EPA. They are capable of over 100 MPH with a little work like added fuel.

    I run the TFI on my bike and no download and it easily hits 120 without a problem and it get's there fast too.

    My questions is...why??? I bought my bagger to "cruise" the highways & byways - not to see how fast it will go. Can't understand why someone would want to take the cadillac of HD cruisers over 100mph...:small3d011:

    A six speed is gonna be a LONG way from hitting the rev limiter at only 100MPH.

    What I have found is that if you run it up hard in 5th. gear to about 105mph the tach. will be at approx 5400 rpm. then bang it into sixth you get a few more mph. out of it. My 07 will run 132 mph.with tourpack removed.
    (this was done on a closed road using a radar gun)

    The RPM limiter really shouldn't effect the speed on a stock bike. I also found that you get a better top end when in 5th gear and not 6th.

    120MPH in 5th gear is only 5300 RPM's which is still 500 below the rev limiter actuation.
