well, if I stopped accelerating at 86.53 mph Id cross the line in the quarter at 13.51 seconds according to my calcs, i guess once I hit forth i hit a wall :

Hate to talk smack but..... I've run 11.80 in the quarter on my EX500; before the new 3mm pistons went in!

Do yourself a favor and trade her in for a couple year old gsxr, ninja or yami if you want to race it anymore. It would be money well spent as most bikes don't hold their value as the newest latest and greatest thing seems to ogle all the i gotta have the fastest whatever?! Even though a bike that is 3 years old sells for like $4000 less than a new one and if it hasn't been crashed it's still perfectly good. I have to admit though that you get a : for trying to be different.

Otherwise, enjoy your ride man,keep the rubber side down; most importantly enjoy being free, since some of us can't ride since we're stuck in some darn foreign country and can only ride our mountain bikes!

that 13.51 was an interpolation if I remained at 86.53 mph for the second 1/8th mile(constant speed, not accelerating)

I highly doubt that an EX500 will out drag even a 10 year old aircooled 600

even when I am the one riding it

Re: 1/8th Mile on a bandit 600?

If you're running 8.3's in the 1/8th, you can expect to be running around 12.8's in the 1/4 at best.

However, you've got a terribly soggy 60' time. I'm guessing here, but that should be about a 450lb machine (wet). There's no reason to not get your 60's down to the 1.8 range with some practice (read: like 50 runs!) That'll cut an honest .6 off your times in the 1/4, so low 12's should be possible.

An EX500 is a fair machine, but the rider is all. Compare the riders from r/t to 330', compare the bikes from 660' to 1/4...
