The information about rider weights is interesting. I'm around 14 stone, or 90 kilo, plus a bit when kitted up. My race leathers etc probably add another stone.
The H2 accelerates so strongly that rider weight has a lesser effect than on many other bikes. Look at it this way, if you can't get onto full throttle without it wheelying then rider weight is not a factor.
My H2 needs to be in fifth gear before I can get anywhere near wide open throttle, even then it needs care. Believe me, when doing a standing-mile top speed run and it's still trying to pick the front up at over 180 mph you have enough power.
By far the biggest limitation to a high top speed on the H2 is it's poor aerodynamics.
I have Don's flash 1 which is the early version and it still has the 13,000 rev limit. Since my bike's peak is at 12,000 it's geared accordingly. However, since I have already set the UK records for the Stock class I am considering the supercharger gears as a way to be competitive in the Modified Stock class - but I will probably need the later ecu flash and I assume it will need a lot more fuel. Does anyone know where the limit is with the standard fuel pump and injectors?
