2017 M8 speed limiter
« on: October 23, 2017, 09:29:54 PM »
I've heard that the M8 in my 2017 SGS has a 110mph speed limiter in the ecm, and nobody has figured out how to defeat or circumvent that limit.... anybody know anything about this?  Ive only had mine up to 108mph as of yet.

TTS tuner, Power Vision tuner, or Direct Link tuner. Nothing the MOCO offers, so no SE products will.
If you never measure your work, you can assume it's perfect.
Doesn't make it so.

I don't understand the comment above.
Do you mean that the TTS, Power Vision Tuner or Direct Link tuner will allow you to remove the 110 mph limitation, BUT the Harley Screaming Eagle Street Tuner will not?
I did not know there was a 110 mph limitation.

I have several built in speed limiters. One sets behind me and jabs me in the ribs. When that one isn't installed old age and declining skills take over it's job.

yupper  we purchase these things hoping to have fun, and ride them rather than go to a dealer and look at the bike while  the big boys a t hd  try to figure out why all the issues , or how to piecemeal then to make it two years .   so its on your dime.

Because every once in a while you get to go onto Pocono Raceway and ride four laps.  Going 120 mph on my Road King this past summer was a blast.  :chop:

I do ride the speed limit on public roads/highways.

I ride at the speed limit or a shade over so I don't have to spend my time looking for the Fuzz instead of the scenery.    :bike:

I have several built in speed limiters. One sets behind me and jabs me in the ribs. When that one isn't installed old age and declining skills take over it's job.

Seldom run over 85 mph any more

My 2018 FLFBS Stage 4 will go 125 in 4th gear in about 10 seconds from zero and cuts off. Tires are rated @149 at least let 4th gear wind out!!
