    rev limiter, you definitely have one. Governor to limit top speed, you may have one. Either way, your ECU is the key. Get a chipped ECU with the right specs, and you won't have a problem. Oh, and cross your fingers, cuz I doubt your motor will overspin and like it.

    the only way to disable the speed governor is to either 1) replace the ECU with an aftermarket one (hondata) 2) get an engine management system which will allow you to override your factory ECU settings, or 3) have your ECU reprogrammed (as mentioned above).

    it does have a speed governor. its called an f22. At 110 mph, the f22 speed governor kicks in. :D

    also it is useless to rev over like 5500 rpm on that motor because power drops off considerably
