Hey how fast will an F5 go because people were saying theres goes, 88 and cant get it to go any faster, some one said 105 and if they re-jet it will go 107, then some guy said it tops out at 93, so what can i expect from it

I couldn't stand it any longer so I threw the 5 on the trailer and made the 1.5 hr drive to the UP yesterday afternoon.man did I need that! I too had been hearing #'s all over the place so I went to find out.Well,on a hard packed trail,that was more like a four lane road,The trail was maybe 1/2 mile straight strech where I opened it upThe sled reached 75-80 no problem but from there on up it took a bit of time.The highest I saw on the analog speedo was 90,with the snopro track,but it was still climbing slowly.My guess for the snopro on ideal conditions,bone stock would be 95mph and that will take a while,not too shabby for a 499cc mill with a biglug track! :D :lol: :D

Still running in break-in mode. I have 40 miles on my sled and I reach 90 mph B) in 1000 feet. Started a little futher back maybe 1250 and ran 95 on radar. It was climbing a little yet. I could see hitting the 105 mph on a 1 mile strech.
