Same thing as on a car. Makes it say on your spedmoter that you're going a lot faster than you really are.

Opposite of bigger tires, my jeep says I'm going 50 when I'm going 95.

I just looked at the beginning of the video, I am quite willing to say that is NOT a stock tire, it looks almost 5-8" smaller in diameter than that of MOST superbikes.

Oh, and towards the end of the video, when they're passing people when it says 300, they're only passing at about 70% faster than those they are passing, so if the cars were going 100 they'd be going 170, that's what it appears to me.

So unless those cars are ALL going close to 240km/h...

two cents

well this is just my two cents... yes you guys say he may or may not have a smaller rim... but interesting is that... you hardly see the bike that the actual camera is on. maybe you do.. im kinda high.. but the bike with the cameras on it isnt necessarly the turbo'd bike (green one) it shows 300 k.. but which bike.. and you car guys are wasting your time on bike videos.. go download getaway in stockholme(doubt its spelt corerectly)
racer X is king... that supras badass.. well whatever im done

I always thought the speedometers were fed from the front wheel, or the transmission.

If from the transmission then a simple sproket change can screw up the speedo.

I've seen it. I'm not doubting his skills, but he's not going that fast.

Now that I think of it, it's probably the tranny, or else the speedo wouldn't rise when doing a wheely. Very low end bikes still read from the front wheel (via a flex cable)

depends on the bike. I dont know about japanese, but Russian bike that my bro had (actually a debaged Honda) was using front wheel. Another Czech bike he had was using tranny.
