Has anyone heard any news regarding a performance chip for the ECU so the rev/speed limiter can be tweaked?

Has anyone besides me gone over 100? If you tried and failed what happened? I went 110 ish and thought I could go faster. I was in a group of Street bikes and they said thats how fast they were going.....till they dusted me. I think the 100 mph limiter is fake and a bunch of crap

It's not a myth, it really exists. If you bring your RPMs up to high in any gear it shuts you down.. that's what happens when you hit 100.

Bogggs Outttt. putt putt puttt

Sport bikes typically have speedo error as high as 10% from the factory, which is why speedo "healer" devices are so popular with sport bike riders.

According to some, it's a conspiracy to trick us into thinking we are riding faster than we are, so we won't ride as fast.

Why would anyone want to go over a 100mph on this kind of bike anyways? If you want to go fast grab the super sport. I thought the Fury was a cruiser, people cruise at 100+ on these bikes often?

When I ride with my MC, we tend to hit the highways fast. I topped the fury out at 111 mph. This was confirmed by the other 6 bikes around me that were surprised when it cut out.

If you want to own those bragging rights do it with a GPS :). Twice :D. In both directions :eek:.
I don't need to partake in a who's is bigger contest. I was just putting the information out there. Do I care if anyone believes me? NOPE!!!!!

Most Hondas have that built in error, including my wifes car, Goldwing and VTX riders have had it for years, the new (09) Wings seem to have an accurate speedo. I told another Fury rider that comes in, to buy a Speed o Healer and set it to show the speedo as slower than actual if he positively has to go over 100. I was kidding I don't know if that would work or not, but the ECU and the speedo are both fed directly off the speed sensor, the healer manipulates that pulse, so if you tell the bike you are going 50 instead of 70, it may work, and no I am not going to find out for you. That guy told me his cut out at 100 in 4th gear and in 5th gear FWIW.

A Speedo Healer would do nothing to stop the bike from cutting power at APPROX 100 mph. It is cutting the power because you have hit the rev limiter (RPMs get too high, the bike cuts power to the spark plugs to keep you from burning up your engine). It has nothing to do with your speed. You will hit the rev limiter in any gear if the RPMs get too high.

I am not sure that is correct, IF the guy I talked with isn't full of bull, and the bike cut out at 100 in 4th AND 5th gears, the rpms would have been different and would not have cut out at exactly 100 in both gears. The VTX1300 and the Fury use basically the same gears, and the VTX1300 will go over 100MPH all day long. The speed sensor on a VTX1300 feeds just the speedometer, on the Fury it also goes into the ECM, looks to me that there is a speed limiter in addition to the (usual) rev limiter. I looked at the wiring diagrams and the parts diagrams and the Speed o Healer on my X won't work on the Fury. So it's probably a mute point anyway.

Agreed, plus it's a little odd (but totally possible) that a rev limiter hits at exactly 100mph, stranger things have happened though I guess. Thats just the way the fury's are, who really cares, mine at 100 was trying to blow my boots off the pegs, the whole reason for me buying this was to slow down and enjoy riding, but that's just me. I would still love to have some sort of re-flash tool to tinker with though, I have programmers and or software for every vehicle I own. The Jet analyzer/programmer software is the ticket on the odII gm vehicles!

Remarkable segue there Chopped !!! You are without question believable; it's the speedometers that are questionable :rolleyes:.

i've always known that speedometers are not precision instruments and they will vary. but i didn't know they were allowed to vary that much! my fury stops at 100mph exactly. if chopped can hit 111, i would have to assume that's the difference between our speedometers and not the bike because the rev limiters will be set to the same rpm from the factory. that being said, if chopped has a speedo that is correct and mine reads low, i'm always going 11mph over the speed limit. doesn't seem fair if i get pulled over now. can i make honda pay my tickets? :D

I believe the Fury has a speed limiter and a rev limiter built into it. My bike will cut out at 40 mph in first, 60 mph in 2nd and 80 mph in third no matter what the temperature, type of gas, load, uphill, downhill, wind or anything other factor. And its an EXACT cut off..I mean right on the 40/60/80 spot.

Besides...if why would they even install speed sensor if they are not going to use it.

Based on my 40 years of riding and racing motorcycles...my gut says the bike has more than just a rev limiter causing engine cut off...it also has a speed cut off.
