I am asking this question for a friend.... what has everyone seeing for top speed ? My friend seems disappointed he has 120 studs  other than that stock. The best he's seen on the speedo  is 185 km/h has anyone seen more/less? Thanks for the input!

A buddy of mine got one. With me on it (195lbs) I had it 117 on the speedo. We had a speed checker on the lake that day and that 117 on the speedo really was closer to 104. This machine also has about 120 studs and 200 miles at that time.

paul.  It would scare the crap out of me going mountain riding.  But 130+ no problem.  I guess its all about how you were brought up into the sport.

I have been on this lake that you guys are talking about in milford,as i live in maine,to.
Woow all i can say 128 on speedo and 108 radar!
108 radar very good for a sled w/120hp. stock,now if sled was studded speedo would have been closer to 118 speedo,they seem to be off about 10mph right across the board,except now ski doo seems to have the best speedo,or closer to actual speed.
I ran 3 stock vipers last year,now all of them were unstudded,so the top speed was higher,but still impressive compared to my xc800 with pipes and mild mods, the viper w/my weight 250lbs.in 2,000 ft.run on hard pack snow would spin speedo to 115 good i thought,than a mod mxz700 piped and moded some ran about same speed,now his speedo was reading 105, and i think that was close to what we were really running.
All 5 of us would run down through and 4 of us would be all togeather w/ my piped xc last every time the rpms were low,but even when it was great on good ice speedo only show 116 not what i was hopeing for,my xcr800 piped up would really rip it up way past 120 on speedo,the twin not even close,dissapointed to say the least,solution rx1! So i sure hope this thing rocks on top,like my triple did. :hallo5:

Last year while in Colorado on a small lake at 10,000 ft elevation, I had 114 on my viper er and so did my cousins wife on hers. This was after rejetting and reclutching for elevation, and I haven't gotten to ride at sea level or a big lake yet, so I'm lookin forward to this year to let her eat!!
