From an anonymous source I have received the following information regarding the Ryan Schnitz 200mph run.

They actually achieved 203mph and 201mph hour runs with very highly skilled riders.



- 1 mile long run

- no air filter

- the bike was lowered and strapped

- Muzzy pipe

- PCIII not PCIIIr with the slight possibility of a Muzzy timing advancer.

- Race Gas by New Tech

- They pried the caliper pistons away from the Rotors to insure there was no drag front and rear

- Royal Purple oil 0/10 weight, not recommended for street use.

- no mirrors

- no blinkers

- 44 tooth sprocket

- apparently the tire pressure was in the 60-70 lbs range (ouch and scarey!!)



Something to think about for high speed runs.



Please email me and correct me if I am wrong or something needs to be added. thank you.

I'll just stick with my slow-ass 17/47 gearing that barely cracks 180 mph on my GPS. 180 mph is a whole lot safer than 200+ mph, ya know?? Got to "think safety" in my old age.

Kingzx12r: do you have anything to add or any comments about the above information on doing high speed runs?



If you have trade secrets I understand. I promise only 300+ people will read about them. <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)">

I think I would have to be there for that one, didn't Doug from muzzy go 203 mph with the big bore kit and all in Bonneville and I believe it took more than a mile. Now of course the kid only weighs 120 lbs kind of like remote control I guess it is possible? Were is Ryan he should answer this one, the gearing sounds right, don't know for sure but I do know mirrors and all on my run it's in the mag. Been there done that. woo hoo fun no matter what.<img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)"> <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)">

If you can contact Ryan Schnitz please tell him about this talk forum, it would be good to get him online.



I was thinking more about the oil, tire pressure etc.

I was concerned that tire air pressure that high sounds kind of scary.

Thanks.

You are still the King of highspeed. He had to spend big bucks, you did it on a budget that everyone can afford.<img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)">
