Module to repealing the speed limiter
« on: December 23, 2011, 09:29:54 AM »
Hello,

Thurn motorsport in Germany offers a module,what switch off the Vmax limiter in the Crossrunner.
In Germany it is not allowed and you would lose your insurance.

Attached a draw of the curves with and without this module.

I thought and discussed about this a long time in another VFR forum...but at the and it is too risky for me and maybe the CR is faster than I want :007:

I'm not sure what the situation would be regarding insurance in the UK. If the company allowed it I'm sure that they would certainly charge extra for your insurance. Anyway for me these days the Xrunner is fast enough for me 99% of the time

What would be the 1% situation when you would need a CR to go over 145mph?  :017:

Wide open road in the early hours of a really nice summers night and I'm in the mood to really go for it.
just in case there are any police officers reading this the above would only apply to a derestricted autobahn in Germany of course :008:

I think that your brother is correct. However how often to you need to ride faster than than the Crossrunner is capeable of? For my own personal needs the crossrunner is ideal :152:

This is a subject which has the potential to make me and a few other owners sound off big time - but in an attempt to keep the lid on things - (which Honda UK did very well when they didn't disclose the top speed restriction :182:) - I would just say that were the true (unrestricted) maximum, flat out ,top speed capability of the bike 123mph - then riding at (say)100 -110 mph on Autobhans for lengthy stretches would perhaps be akin to thrashing the machine.

However, as the unrestrcted capability of the bike is clearly significantly higher than 123mph - it's probably fair to say that it's less stressful (for the bike) to ride at circa 100 to 110mph (when legal to do so).

I am also fairly sure that were the bike unrestricted it would be a pretty unstable machine if ridden at speeds up to the full unrestricted capability provided by the fabulous V4 motor - which is why its restricted in the first place. So - no point in de restricting - buy another bike if you want to ride 125mph plus (something big and heavy like a BMW 1300 maybe)

I suspect the limiter is a thing to come to all motorcycles. Motorcycle company lawyers, insurance companys, etc are probably behind it. "Grin and bear it". Big brother is striking again.
