That’s interesting, my X ADV does the same. I think it’s to do with governing the throttle, I can almost redline it in fifth, and once six gear comes in it slows down( I think it’s because they are governed at 105, ( on a private road, of course) ))
That would be weird. That would actually mean that reducing the sprocket size would make the top speed lower instead of higher, since the max revs stay the same.Limited or governed, same thing really, in six gear, mine is not able to rev more than Hondas preset levels
If 6th is restricted in revs, then increasing the front sprocket is the way to gain more top speed given that the engine power can handle it. Which it looks it can. I find it weird that Honda would limit top gear too revs. But if you say so, I believe you. I just haven’t seen this before in over 50 years of riding bikes.It is weird, I know on the T7. If you increase the front sprocket size it lowers the revs and you’ve got that better high speed and there was no engine restriction, but I’m sure in time people will change the front sprocket to see what happens.!
On my ex adv, I can read it to 6500 rpm in 5th as does freely hit the rev limit or just about but as soon as it goes into six, I can’t get anywhere near it
If that was true, then top speed should be the same in 5th and in 6th. In the video you can clearly see that in 6th top speed is significantly less than in 5th.I’m thinking, are they limiting the top speed because the RPM are not limited in any other gear?
