Top Speed: 2011 KX250F, stock gearing = 66 mph

I've been using a couple of apps to track my trail riding and was surprised that I was only going around 45 mph max, even on some straight sections of trails. Today I got everything cleaned up and ran a test run with "My Tracks" on a straight section of road by my office. I was hitting the rev limiter in fifth. Imagine my surprise to see the speed chart maxed at 42 mph.


Then I reviewed the "Stats" section and noted a top speed of 66 mph. Turns out the tracking programs store information so infrequently it is possible to miss high speeds in different sections, so short straight runs weren't being recorded.


I probably could have gone a little faster, as I backed off when the rev limiter started kicking in. But glad to know my little 250 can go faster than 45. :ride:

Yeah 45 is wayyyyy too slow

Yep. I knew I was going faster. Was frustrating to see the app reading so low. Glad I tested it.

On my gps with standard gearing 2012 Kx 250 i have reached 112 km/h which is about 70 mph . 

Sounds about right.

      2015 Kawasaki KX250f - 20 hours
      As close to new as I'd imagine you'd get! I bought the bike brand new, I'm older and have taken extremely good care of this bike. Very little use and is COMPLETELY stock - everything is original. 
      Comes with the title, original book and map couplers for the fuel injection.
      $4700 - cash

      Time for a top end on my bike, just wondering if there are any alternative Valve springs i can use. I have PC cams and $400 for just the springs and retainers is alil costly at the moment.
      This has been fun in other sections of TT, so I'll start the thread here and see if we can keep it going.
      Let us know what kind of mods, fixes, changes, etc.., you performed today, or just general fun you had with, your KX250F.
      I'll start with.. I installed a correct for my weight Race Tech shock spring, along with a Pivot Works shock spring thrust bearing. Also cleaned out all the nasty yellow plastic/wax crap that passes for grease in the lower shock bearing, and re-lubed it with Bel Ray waterproof.
