    Speed at different elevations

    So how much speed can you lose...say every 1,000ft you go above sea level?

    I don't care about how many RPM you can lose because I run at 1,150ft. above sea level and turn 8100 to 8150 RPM depending on how hot and humid it is, and I've never had a repitch.

    Is it possible that I would be 1mph faster at sea level?

    Yes, could touch 1.5 even. Are you going to invent a new supercharger?

    I'm at 893 ft and going to 200 ft changes nothing.

    I'm not sure about speed. Anyway, when I ride at 2,850 feet I loose about 250 rpms on the 06 RXP/RXT. I never gps'd it up there.

    I gain 6-8 mph going to 910Ft from 6000ft. I can't remember exactly what my RPM's are but they are down too.
