Is it unrealistic to expect these SV engines (solo) to be able to hit and stay on highway speeds? (100kmph for me)
I would like to hear from others that have modified their bike to do this, and the parts i may need to change out.
No problems doing 100 km/h day in and day out as a solo WITH solo FD gearing (3.89). Since K-750s were sidecar bikes you probably have a 4.625 FD and you'll blow the motor very quickly through over-reving.
