While I was looking over my sled after 600 miles, I noticed that if I held the throttle on the handlebar wide open, I could still push the mechanism that the throttle cable hooks up to on the throttle body another 1/8"-1/4" before it would actually bottom out/stop. Is this why I might have only been able to get 91 MPH on semi hard-packed conditions at 0 degrees. - 5 degrees F. ??

I'm curious how many people checked their throttle cable(what did you some up with....too long ot too short) and ended up adjusting it? Thanks!

Well that was a helpfull reply. I'm not familar with the EFI and was looking for a bit more of a reply - maybe there is a reason the throttle cable does not bottom out for all I know. Come on... a smart guy like you could do better. :D
