I have an 02 with 16/44 gears and I am running 146- 148 in 5th through the traps. But on my speedo it is showing 185-188, so I was wondering if the governor (185 limit) is slowing the bike down?

Put one knee down for the curves and both knees down for GOD!</p>

I'm no expert, but if you take your bike over H3 and do a roll on in 5th until you read ~190 and then do the same in 6th you should have your answer. I'm pretty sure it's a combined gear position/speed sensor input that activates the governor, so it shouldn't limit you in 5th.

Sounds like you're getting some good 1/4mi times. Do you run every Friday/Saturday? I'm about ready to head back out there and give it a shot. Maybe you can give me some pointers.

I am out their every Friday, but my wife is leaving tomorrow until Friday so I will be taking a break next weekend. Their are 4 zx12r's that race so it will be great to have one more show up.
