smaller sprocket

i have a stock s1000rr and i wana make it a 200 mph bike ive gps at 192 . i talked to a performance company that has put the bike well over 200 at the salts .and they told me to get a sprocket in the rear any wear from 42 to 40 and that should do the trick.if anyone has already done this to there bike. im pretty much looking to see if it put the bike over 200 what size they used and if they could even notice the difference from take off since the bike has so much power to begin with ?

One of the British bike magazines did a sprocket and pipe/power commander and got 203 mph.... Google it and I'm sure you'll find the details.

I found it...

The golden rule of thumb is that an experience land speed racer can achieve 200 mph if the bike puts down 200 HP to the wheels. Of course mother nature can help some and hurt a lot to those numbers. I believe that Motor Cycle News had some major help from her when they reached that claimed speed.

Funny how I can't recall that any S1000rr has been officially clocked at above 200 on the salt. Hmmm?

There are now quite a few people that have gone over 200 mph. Google shows at least 7 different people that have gone over 200 mph; verified at officially timed events.

To name a few.

On the salt is FAR more difficult due to traction issues; wheelspin in 6th gear.. sometimes there's a 20 mph differential between wheel speed and actual speed due to the low traction surface.

I'm going for 200 mph in the Ohio Mile in June. I'm running a 39 in the rear.
A '12 S1K at the last event did 208 with a 39 rear.

Correct, hince my comment about going over 200 on the salt.

Valerie's bike is far from stock and the KWS bike is way far from stock.
Back to my orginal statement, without help from mother nature it takes 200 wHP to run 200 mph (on asphalt). Takes even more to run 200 on the salt. My point is: a simple sprocket switch ain't going to do it.

Valerie did 198 with the stock exhaust & MR12 last September. This year her bike is definitely not stock now. I think with a aftermarket exhaust, tune & sprocket and no distance limitations (standing mile) an S1000 can do 200 mph.

They (ECTA) just posted the run log for the last event (April '13) and according to that the fastest S1000rr was Valerie's at 198 mph.
