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.

On flat ground I can consistently get 45. I have hit 58 down the longest, steepest section of paved road you have ever seen.

Dezz, it was on the speedometer that it hit 60. but im not sure how acurate it is. it was when i was trying to keep up to my friend on his 2-stroke 250  dirtbike, and he wasnt pulling away very fast! it was probably like 5-8 mph less, but it did hit the 60 mark on the speedo.

im scared crapless to even get into like 4th and 5th gear on my bear, much less do over like 20-25 mph, i think the fastest ive been was up to about 40mph and it took one long darn time to get up to it and when u get that bike that fast it sounds like it wants to blow the heck up
 
but when i hit the 40mph i was on the beach with outlaws and with my 2" lift on my bike it feels like a darn sky scraper when u go to get on it much less doing 30 or 35 or 40mph on loose sand with those tires and a lift. i had to be on the rear rack with my butt im sure most of the time to keep the front tires from really getting to deep into the sand and slowing me down
 
i bet a bb could hit 60mph if it was not in gear and was being pulled by a truck down a bridge

Well I would say that the Speedomoter is a little off.....to get the closest approximation of how fast your Bear can go, get someone in a car to clock you, or use GPS if you have/get one.
Automobiles are not exact either....but are close.

i may get up to 30 on mine... no one goes fast around here... i agree with oilfield the big bear ain't designed to go fast
