Has enyone ACTUALLY done 200mph on a 2008+ CBR1000RR?

I've done a lot of reading in the archives and i haven't found and answer to my question. Has anyone actually had a confirmed 200+mph run and can prove it. I've started working on this project myself, but before i invest to much time and money i'd like any advice from someone who's done it before if possible. Thanks!

Wow. I've always read the top speed of the 2008 was 186, give or take. That's a heck of a bump. Looks like you don't need to spend too much money, just a roll of gaffer's tape will do it.

WOW. 186 mph is what the bike is governed at. First you need to get rid of the governor. In order to break higher speeds, the power needs to grow exponentially. So using a roll of tape won't do a lot.

I've seen a CBR 600 RR with a turbo charger break 200 mph, but is was tuned & set up by Dyno Jet. They did the run at Bonneville (or another speed trial location). So you should be able to find it online. If a 600 can do it, I'm sure you can set up your 1000 to do the same. It's up to you and how much you want to spend.

I know my bike pulls very strong to the 186 and it feels like it has a lot left still... Im sure it is very possible and I doubt it would cost very much more than the usaul mods everyone does to get there.... your biggest enemy at that speed is head wind... with the wind to your back it make a HUGE difference...Good luck i hope you can get her done...

I know this is possible. I guess what i'm hoping for is someone who has personal expirence that could give me an idea of what worked, and what didn't for them. I already have a fairly good idea what it is going to take to reach that speed. Just hoping for and warnings, suggestions, or any other information about the do's and do not's for reaching my goal.

Thanks!
