I don't have a tack on my bike but 80 is the top speed on my 04 Honda shadow 750 what can I do to change my rev limiter or increase my speed

Sorry, something is wrong here. Your Shadow should easily do 95 to 105 as top speed. Have a motorcycle shop check out what is wrong here. As far as increasing its top speed, you could change the sprocket to less teeth at the rear wheel (then increase the front sprocket appropriately), but then your acceleration will suffer.

How do i change the gearing on a 2005 sportster 1200c

if its chain, try different sprockets, bigger front will give lower rpms ,and pull longer ,and be faster

if you go rear, smaller will lower rpms, and be faster, bigger rear will be quicker but top speed will not be as fast
not sure if there is a speed sensor , that needs to be changed,
i have the same bike, and am wanting the bigger front pully stock is 29 i think , and there is a 30,and a 32 tooth pully for the belt drive models! sweet product , not belt change either!, but like i said i read something about a speed sensor that needs something to correct it

What is the simplest way to do to make honda wave 100 become high speed??

The simplest way is to change the stock front sprocket for a larger one. Assuming the stock sprocket has 12 teeth, go to a 13 or 14 tooth sprocket. This will give a higher top end speed but will slow the bike on acceleration off the line. Simple and low cost.

What is the top speed of a 2002 Honda CR250R 2 stroke?

The only figure I could find was 70 mph. But from all the research, what the bike is known for is power and reliability. It is also extremely strong and can take a tremendous pounding. It is right up there with the comparative Yamaha'sn Suziki's and the KTM. Good ,uck.

To improve top speed,one solution is to change your gearing, via the chain and sprocket set up. To gain more top speed, you need to replace your rear sprocket with a smaller one, say about 5 or 6 teeth less. Also the front sprocket changed for a slightly larger one, usualy 1 or 2 teeth more. Note, that while doing this will give you a greater top speed, it will not make your bike more powerful. A power pipe, or aftermarket muffler would be a great improvement too.

Does anyone know where the speed sensor is located on a buell blast

The speed sensor is in the casing just above the front sprocket and senses the transmission shaft speed. Any change of final drive ratio or tire size will throw off readings.

Also because it is magnetic it can pick up shavings from the transmission and stop working. In that case unscrew it and wipe it off. Re-install and go for a ride! if it does not work then it needs to be replaced.

I was going out 60 mph and then it started reading 0 mph while i was still going need to know what i need to do to fix that everything else works

there are two parts to register to your speedometer. the first part is the speed rotor, that's is located behind the front sprocket cover. it is held on to the front sprocket by the allen head bolt. the second part is the speed sensor, that's the part held on to the front sprocket cover with a 4mm allen head bolt. speed rotor is about $15, try that first since it's cheaper. then about $85 if the speed rotor didn't fix the problem.

Where is the speedometer sensor at exactly omn a gsx r 600 05 ??

it's located on the front sprocket cover held on by a 4mm allen key bolt. if yor sensor is good, there is a part called the speed rotor that could be bad. the speed rotor is the plate on top of the front sprocket that sends the signal to the speed sensor.
