--ACTUAL Top Speed '05 450R ???

I am wondering if anyone has solid proof of what the actual top speed is of an '05 trx 450r that is completely bone stock. i have heard 72 or 73 mph. I am wondering this because i have one of my '85 Honda Odyssey FL350's "built" and it is faster then my 450r!

Let me know. Thanks.

When mine was stock it did around 71 mph with a 200+ pound rider. Used a GPS.

Howzit,

I heard from the previous owner my TRX 450 r 2005 traveled 160 km, that is about 99.5 miles. This was done with a different exhaust though.

Yeah, well he had it regeared then. Just by changing the sprockets you can get it to go that speed but I will take a lot longer to get going. By changing the exhaust you will get no more top speed. In most cases it will improve acceleration, but the rev limiter is what limits the top speed of the bike with stock gearing. Not just throwing on a different exhaust.

Hi,

I agree with you, as I said to him I like to talk fact, I do not speculate. There are quite a few things one can do to enhance to that speed, no problem, but the exhaust is not the main peanut in the gallery.

Cheers.

Ok. Thanks Coke.

Like I said I was wondering what STOCK can do. Not different muffler, not changed gearing.

79.8 MPH completely stock, but I just say 80. This has been measured by many, including dirt wheels and a couple other magazines. Always right around 80.

Nice. Shows what the extra 1000 RPM's will do with the HRC kit.
