Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, nothing is wrong. This bike/model is primarily geared for offroad use hence the sprocket/gear number of teeth are meant for low speed/high power (torque).

If after speed, change the sprocket/gear number of teeth/ratio.

Do u think its governed for speed
Expert:  Louie replied 11 months ago.

No, to my understanding there is no electronic/RPM limiter.

Bike's speed (not engine RPM) can be made to go change by increasing or decreasing the number of teeth as above posted.

You wouldnt happen to know what sites id have luck findingtheright parts for a storm 250 would u
Expert:  Louie replied 11 months ago.

Other than the dealer, unfortunately no.

Even in my country, we have to order parts from the dealer.
