Just a quick question here, but I took my 2005 Brutale 750 out to the country side and was getting on it pretty good on some long straight roads, and it struggled above 100mph. The fastest I got it up to was 108mph, and I dont ride at those speeds very often but I thought that was on the slow side for this bike. Is this the norm for the 750, or is something not quite right? Acceleration is pretty damn quick up to about 60 or 70mph if you gun it, so that am falls like it should. I've have a few problems with the bike, but she is running like a champ at the moment without any issues.

Given the acceleration is \pretty damn quick' is it possible a previous owner (assuming there was one) has changed sprockets from standard?

I believe I am the 3rd owner of this bike...possibly the 4th. The previous owner barely rode it, he put just over 600 miles on it over 2 years. I ride a few hundred miles a month easy. One person had mentioned to me about the rear sprocket looking pretty big though. So that could be the case. I've attached a pic of the rear sprocket below.

Think you might want to start a Crowdfunding site for some chain lube!

Are you hitting redline? Or are you running out of power?

108 mph top speed sounds IMHO to be well under the bikes potential...

I woulda thought hanging on like feck in a 140 / 150 mph breeze while grinning like the proverbial Cheshire cat...?

Is 47 Tooth the standard rear sprocket? (I haven't looked at manuals yet).

My 910R has seen over 150 (tucked down and still being blown off the back!). I would think you should easily see 120 on the 750.
How old is the fuel filter? Could it be you are "running out of gas"?

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.
