how do they get to 202 on stock gearing though?
I don't think the gearing is the issue on the bikes, it's the limiter that cuts it off at a certain speed.

I haven't done much research myself because I don't need to break the sound barrier, but won't a stock geared gsxr 1000 break the "limited" 186 with a TRE?

im not sure i thought most 1000s were power limited to 180 something just kinda crazy the busa has that more power to get it over 200 mph

hmm, well I know the 1000s are limited at 186, but it's not a true 186 due to speedo error etc. As far as their capabilities past that once the limiter is removed, I have no idea since mine hasn't been altered.

I suppose we'll just have to wait on the brains to answer this one.

how do you remove the limiter though? I know most tre's dont affect the speed limiter

hmm, well I what I read was that it basically tricks your bike into thinking it's not in 6th gear, or something of that nature. So it's basically just tricking your ecu, but I don't know the accuracy of that statement. And like I said, I haven't done much research on it, basically just saw some threads of people talking about them here and there. NOS Nelson would be able to answer this one for sure.

ya i think it just helps with part throttle applications to move the secondary butterflies open faster and i think i read somewhere on the busa it might remove the speed limiter but i know on ivans smart tre's it wont remove the limiter on the gsxr1000 or zx-10r

The factories change the rev limiter and Ignition timing depending on what gear the bike is in. On the Busa the ECU retards the timing in 1st and 2nd iirc to reduce the power, it also sets a lower rev limiter in 5th and 6th. The TRE stops this from happening, I believe by making the ECU think the bike is always in 3rd gear. Again, its been a few years since I really dug into this on the Suzukis so dont quote me on the specifics, Motomummy might have em off the top of his head though if you are looking for the exact answer.

Everyone has a different opinion on the TRE's.....Liek sid before, there's no denying the 08 busa is a BEAST.........you guys seen the one Velocity racing already put a turbo kit on?

yes it's limited. You can get around that with a tre and other gizmo's but the busa has always had GREAT aero's for high speed runs. It also takes a ton of hp. The gsxr 1000 doesn't have the aerodynamics or the hp for it. You could still do it w/ more mods though, but the busa is just set up for it nearly right out of the box and especially the 2008 busa. the gsxr 1000 needs more hp and some better aero's as the wind resistance is the largest key on high speed runs...the wind resists becomes more and more of a factor exponentially.
