Can anyone tell me a ballpark figure on what the true top speeds/redline are for each gear 1st= 2nd= ect. It would be cool to know what they are truly. I read that 2nd gear can hit around 90mph..... I don't se that being possible since the bike has a top speed/limited at 132mph in 5th and 6th.

In the "speed limiter sucks thread" on fz-09forums look at post #29. This info is from that.
Theoretically using the calculator this is the break down;
1st- 63
2nd-84
3rd-103
4th-121
5th-141
6th-162

I think this is pretty accurate. I bounced 2nd and 3rd off the rev limiter tonight and those were very close to the numbers I saw. If anything I saw 2 mph higher!

It looks like every gear adds approx 20 mph.

With stock gearing only fifth and sixth can the speed limiter be reached because max rpms will not allow more speed. Meaning theoretically you could gear the heck out of the final drive and reach the speed limiter in second through sixth.
