12000 rpm on a pulsy!! u must be out of ur mind!! the Apache rtr 160 as of now is the only stock bike claimed to have reached the 12k mark.

The other bike crossing the 10k rpm mark is the CBZ.

You can have the meter tell you anything, but the real test is when u dyno run it.. try ur pulsy on a dyno and u will get to know the reality.

Rev meter is accurate by itself, unlike a speedo, not sure how dyno testing will show how high the bike can rev? Dyno can project torque at rear wheel thru which we can calculate bhp at crank

Yes, I've reached about 9500rpm in my stock P150 dtsi. But as said earlier, the first gen pulsars did not have rev-limiters, so they revved much higher.

Like you said, there is no use revving beyond 8000rpm, for it just does not make any more power.

The classic 180 easily crossed 10K on the RPM. As mentioned earlier, they had no rev limiters. Also, the dyno doesn't really show the rev-limit, the results are in the form of a graph with the torque and/or power curve with the RPM on the x-axis.

The point is, all that is needed for an engine to rev high is a shorter stroke, keeping the bore constant. However, producing power after a certain rev-range is a different ball game altogether (taking into consideration the fuelling and timing adjustment)

Heres a dyno chart of a Pulsar UG2 (which has a rev-limiter) with some other bikes .Notice that it just crosses the 10K mark.

Nice Chart there. Is that the Fiero twin?

So the 180 makes 12.43 at the wheel. Hmm...........

To reply to the mail. Check your carb and clean it if required. When was the last time you serviced the bike.

Also keep the bike below 8000 rpm beyond that you are seriously reducing the life of the engine.

Okay I guess ou did not go through the post carefully. Here it is again:

Note that I have mentioned the classic 180 and not the later versions (UG1, UG2, UG3 etc etc.) coz they struggled to get past the 10 K mark. The Dyno chart,however, has the graph for the UG2, which everyone's aware of, has a rev-limiter. So, if the UG2 is able to cross the 10K mark somehow, the classic 180 can easily manage it.

Well, I have never tried a top-speed run on it, but within first, second and third gear it revs upto 11-11.5 K easily.

Wow!! did not know it was so easy!!

Well! If I had one why on earth would I be asking the question Mr.Einstien .

I thought one could enquire abt the specifications of car's and bike's on this forum without owing them!!

Did I miss something!

Cheers,

If you ask the same question over and over again do you think you will get a different answer each time? As for RPM thing go over my replies posted on the first page, now if you still feel you need replies regarding that or you have to have dyno stats then go ahead and get a classic yourself and get those figures, no one is going to do it for you!
