    Why is it that my R125 wont get past 65 MPH?
    I'm guessing it must have been since I've fitted my GPR exhaust system I reckon.

    Since I fitted it I've barely gotten time to go out for pleasure ride or thrash as I call it. ;)
    Its all 30 MPH round town riding. So I've not known until yesterday when I went for a "thrash".

    The acceleration is awesome, but top end has gone pants.
    Is this due to needing the fuel air ration sorting?
    Would a K&N filter give me back my top end?

    Any suggestions would be great as now I may as well be riding a Peugeot SpeedFight for top end fun. :(

  2. Id be interested to know the answer to that, as i struggle to hit 70! I've wondered for a while if a K&N air filter would make much difference?!

    Yeah me too? What exhaust are you running?

    All these people on here saying they get 85 as "standard" and they've ragged it to 86 and 88 etc irritates me.

  4. I dont think ive ever got to 80mph lol..!

    I've got a Mivv GP full exhaust system, didnt know what one to get so thats what i chose!

    Looks a nice exhaust mate.
    Better than seeing the same mainstream ones all the time.

    And to be honest they all do the same thing.
    Performance is minimal between them. Its just sound that alters.

  7. I'd be interested to know as well. Struggle to get to 65+. Everything is as stock.

    72 Bud? You're doing better than us others.

    You really need to let me know if the K&N makes it better or worse.
    Because I don't want to buy one if it does more harm than good.

    When are you likely to test it?

    And hows your foot doing dude? :)

    I'm about 12 stone and a pork pie.

    I think it must be fuelling. :confused:
    Since I added the aftermarket exhaust system.
