You can upgrade to the fully customizable transmission and extend the gearing.

As Tease says, you are probably hitting the Rev limiter.

If it ain't broke, I haven't fixed it yet.

Look for the little red flashing light by the gear indicator. When it flashes, you're on the rev limiter, and can't go any faster. Like Tease said - upgrade your trans, and increase your top speed.
