Should have one. Coulda been a fluke on your speedo (sometimes they read more) or whoever had it before you might have had it removed (if you weren't the first owner).

If you activate the odometer diagnostic thingy you can view the digital speedometer...it is more accurate than the sweeping one as I recall.

I had to flash mine away.

That's what i've read too, but i defiantly go faster then 108. maybe previous owner did that how would i check for it? don't mean to thread jack but i see how people get when someone makes a thread on top end.

Edit- I don't think it was the speedo reading wrong, i mean it took a good 3-4 miles to get it there crawling up after 115 or so.

hughesart, I would like to apologize for a few member's rude comment as it was not warranted. But it looks like your question has been answered so I'm going to lock this thread.
