      Thanks. It may also be due to the fact that its my first motorcycle.
      Lazy me hasn't shared a few more stories.

        ~6yrs old, ~90k on odo, stock engine and bike. I(90+kg weight) managed to clock 111km/hr (in 720m) on the speed gun. Below a friend clocked 107km/hr (in 540m) on the speed gun.

          That's a commendable top speed & even the recent 150's would hesitate to achieve those speeds

          One question - what was the speed on Odo when you achieved true 111 ?

            That's a 90k on the odo ,6 year old bike and it's reached that speed within 720 mtrs. That alone says something about the stock fiero's top-end vis-a-vis current generation of bikes.

              • Will you guys stop talking about the top end of the Suzuki Fiero?
                It is making me feel embarasssed!
                I remember when I got my Fiero F2, the company claimed topspeed written on the manual itself was 100kmph!
                Which means a 105 on the speedo, nothing more!

                  Even Suzuki fiero's manual quotes speed around 105kmph.Typical jap mentality i guess. They never reveal those things or make ridiculous claims.

                  • I know for a fact that the fiero f2/pulsar dtsi /cbz classic were put on the dynamometer at pacer yamaha here and they found out that the fiero f2 makes more power at the rear wheel.That is the "real world" power numbers not the manufacturer quoted ones which are for the crank.It made more power than the other bikes and was the highest revving bike which revved till the 9.5k rev limit.Interestingly cbz classic and fiero f2 made more power at the rear wheel than the pulsar dtsi's.

                      Whatever you say, I have never seen my bike go beyond 105kmph, even when it was new!

                        I don't remember seeing the speedo as I was looking on the road. But once I have checked against gps, at 106 on gps the odo was between 115-120 mark. But at that moment I wasn't running Fiero's console, instead it was that of Apache 150.

                        • Can anyone tell me the perfect airscrew adjustment for the best mileage setting? Once the air screw is fully tightened how many turns towards the left do we need to unscrew?

                            =================================================

                            I'd say anything between two full turns to four turns... depending upon several factors. I have learned it the hard way... and it all depends upon altitude, weather, climate etc. Currently mine is set to 2.75 turns. I guess the spark plug tells the story and one has to ride it after the tuning and check the plug. I now know that there is no one perfect setting for bikes.

                              I have heard the top speed of Fiero & CBZ Classic was 106 & 108Kmph respectively in an old shootout in one of the websites which I am not able to recall which one & I am now wondering how can they do so when the bike actually has more potential & ppl like you are achieving more than 110kmph true top speed

                                Magazine top-end performance or tests are to be taken with a pinch of salt.They usually will be promoting a brand and will be heavily biased in their views and their tests reflect just that.

                                Track tests done by racers/not magazine employees ,with real data spewed out in numbers,or ones done with a third party dynamometer are the ones to be believed.
