So tell me... on an '84 GL1200 Aspencade... all stock... fairing and bags all OEM... about what speed in overdrive should I expect it to run out of horsepower... or in short... if I roll on from 65mph in top gear, on flat land, at 700ft ASL, 95F, 75% humidity at what speed wind drag and rolling resistance reach the crossing point of the torque curve? 110? 120?

Not sure that I know the real answer but on mine, two up, 115 is doable on a track.

My 1100 full dress 2 up will run out of steam about 110. Only done it once and not for long.

That's about right, :yes: the 1200's are slower out of the hole, but more than make up for it once you get rolling. :thank_you: 4,000 R P M's on my old 1100's was about 60 M P H, compared to the 1200's at about 80 M P H. :yahoo: Never have reached the top speed of my 1200 standard yet, :nea: but 130 on the speedometer was reached once. :whip: You run out of road way too fast around here for that stuff, and some cops can get pretty exited about such behavior :heat: believe it or not! :hihihi:

Found this chart on the net. Don't know how accurate it is but it gives some comparisons:

This forum thread has a 1200 on a dyno with graphs: http://www.gl1200goldwings.com/gl1200/s ... 2#pid44852

Nice chart ...the hooch bike with its 86 1200 motor and 1200 final drive does run about 80mph at 4000 rpm .....the way it pulls around 100mph ...I can't see it not getting at least 7000rpm in fifth gear ...that around 140mph...deal is the bikes frame and all is just not capable of going there as it is ....under wot hooch is like automatic nightmare just before 100mph ...I've thought about this a lot ...I'm thinking it has a lot to do with the shaft drive on a oldwing trying to push the bike sideways ...front gets real lite and the bike pushes the front forks ...from the factory these bikes track about a 1/2" off ,,,I think this was done on purpose to off set the shaft drive push ...or chassis jacking it also called ...so to me top speed is limited on these bikes set up wise ...sure is on my modded oldwing hooch...the motor has much more than bike does

That's one of the things I love about my Valkyrie. At 70MPH, it's just putting along at 3000RPM. Great road bike. Wait...what am I saying? All the GL's are.
