RE: big bear TOP SPEED!!!
I just haveto ask this....how do you know that you were doing 60 mph?
Were you just using the speedometer? Was it clocked off using a calibrated radar gun? Was someone riding next to you in a automobile clocking you off? Were you using GPS?
I am just wondering, thats all.....
I have to ask because I just can't see a BigBear going that fast. It is geared way too low to be able to do that.
I used to own a 95' 400 Kodiak Dual Range. I had it do 52 mph (clocked using GPS). I was going downhill for about 1 minute at FULL wide open throttle. It was revving so high, I thought the engine was going to suffer a nuclear meltdown. I know this is a different machine....but I also used to work on Yamaha's, and I have never seen a BB that could go that fast. And my Kodiak was faster than any other Kodiak/Bigbear in my living area. All machines completely stock of course. There wasn't much in people doing mods back then in my rural area of Newfoundland, Canada.
If your BB can go that fast, then hold onto it...you have a one of a kind BigBear.
