    Question How Fast is 8100 RPM's On a '06 RXP

    So I was out riding today & with 6 hrs on my RXP & I decided to do a short WOT burst. I got up to 8100 RPM's but for some reason my GPS registered 173 MPH??? I had it in my glove box but I've always done this and nvr had any problems. I can only assume something interfered.

    Question

    Oops! I meant to say 8000 RPM's. I didn't hold it wide open but it didn't seem willing to go to 8100. Could this be because it's still breaking in or does it take a few seconds to top 8100 RPM's?

    wait till 10 hours and see what happens with the RPMs... but in the meantime change the oil and keep beating on it a little bit

    Yeah I've been pretty easy on it 'till yesterday. Buddy, he has a Yami VX110, & I rode the Ashley River out into the harbor by the USS Yorktown and put 4 hours on it. First time I ever had it in salt water & I enjoyed the ride but don't care for the salt.

    Click on the link to check out a few pics of the USS Yorktown and our new bridge that spans the Cooper River:

    BTW - No idea who the people are but couldn't separate the photo set.
