2019 kingquad 750 hittin rev limiter top speed

brand new 750 on paved road, hitting 68mph and bouncing off the limiter. I didn't check if the override switch stopped it, but is there a way to make it not do this?

cmon man hang your dunce cap up! That is just ridiculous. Your machine wont see its 3rd birthday if you are that crazy. Surely that means you are pushing way past the limits in other areas of such a fine machine. Utility atvs aint made for that shit.

trade it in for a sports car...

the King Quad is running low pressure unrated (for highway speed) tires with a small contact patch on anything but mud or sand...with steering geometry designed for slooooow(ish) maneuvering...it'll tuck a front tire under in aggressive high speed turns... its top heavy and... and .... and......

well enuf of that...

yes we have all (myself included) taken the KQ up to max to see how fast it would go and in my case its 118 kph...and once was enuf when I realized how easy it is to die in a ugly crash...

yes I cruise at 70 kph (45 mph) all day long on the long straight stretches..and about 40-50 lph when I can... but the King is a utility quad with a bit of sport thrown in... you may be better suited to a Yamaha Wolverine or similar if you riding is more "sport" like...

Hey you can drive em that way for another 30 years. I can also drive a jeep 70 mph for 30 years and think that I am cool like you.
The point is you do it your way and have your joy while missing out on a better experience with the proper ride.

Suzuki engineers put rev limiters on their quads for a reason. Trying to bypass the rev limiter to push the limits of your King Quad is probably not a wise decision.

The rev limiter is there to protect the engine. It would be really bad for the engine life expectancy if you bypassed it.
I drove my 2005 KQ 700 for 6500 miles so far. Probably half of it over 50 mph and often tapped in the 60s, as I like to race on frozen rivers with Team WMD (Motocross, Sprot Quads and Grizzlies and King Quads). Check out some of our videos on Youtube to find out what a King Quad can handle over the years.

The King Quad is designed to ride "like that" and hold up pretty well. The fact that I just needed to adjust the intake valve shim to get it to start in cold weather (<20F) is a testament to good reliability engineering.
The only problem is it always used oil riding like that (1 quart every 500 miles). I bought it used and it had the factory air cleaner. Not much dust in the TB but......

Thanks for the replies, None of my other machines have ever hit a rev limiter. ATC250r, 200X, 350X, 250bigred, 250X Hondas and also my latest suzuki vinson. Of course I'm not riding at full speed all the time but if I want to drag race a buddy on hardpack I can hit 68mph very fast and that is the max speed where the limiter kicks in.
