expect no more then 95 realy on gps. I was doing 93 on ice but my rpms were just at 7900RPM cause my clutching is off. A guy that I ride with has the same sled as me with a AAEN pipe, chip but the clutching is off and he does arround 90-95 depending on the day. If you get it over 100 its doing good. 80-85 could probly be better try to get a longer run going.

Back in the day I had one of those all stock other than a black magic clutch kit and regularly competed in radar runs keeping in mind that the days condition means everything and most runs were on cleared lakes the best run for mine was 104.6 mph on ice with a skiff of snow no wind.The one thing on that year of zr to check is the secondary clutch it was a one off polaris copy and the buttons or slides are inside the secondary out of sight and a complete disasembly is the only way to check there condition.That run I forgot to mention was a long pull 1500 feet or more.T.I.R

On the gauge on the sled I have my 95 ZR 580 doing 90 on a seasonal road.

just slam the gas and go

Don't believe anything the government has to say unless they say that the price of something will go up.
