    Why can't i get over 70?

    How about a few suggestions. I am still only getting 69.1 mph. Any suggestions?

    i am gonna stake a stab and say the extra 40 lbs. of fuel you are carrying (the difference between 1/2 and 1/4 tank) is the reason

    I noticed that you have done the BOV mod. Did you adjust it or remove and block it off?

    Getting closer. Less fuel, longer WOT duration, better riding position...
    69.9 mph
    8140 rpm

    Your rpm's are good and your speed isnt. You have some drag somewhere.

    I'll take a shot. Did you remember to turn your timing wheel as far clockwise as you can and make sure that it was still turned that far when it was tightened. That could be 1-2 mph right there.

    Also might want to check your ride plate. I had Rudy at R Rated machine mine a bit cause it was hanging too low. Now it fits nice and snug.
