I believe (if memory serves) after a few runs I was hitting 10.8 consistantly, with a completely stock bike....
haven't tried it since (2 years ago)...

Wow, sounds awesome. I saw a old motorcyclist magazine and it said 10.82 for a 98 T595. There was a guy pn t595.net saying he has hit a best of 11.1 stock. Either way these are good times.

I hope to get my bike on a drag strip this summer. I was a import drag event last summer and there was a bike section. Really the times were all based on rider skill. So slow bikes smoke fast bikes, it was all rider. Watched a guy with a bran new Busa stumble getting of the line get a little leaned over and just spun the rear. Sent the bike spining across the track on its side.

I plan to do a run and the Parry Sound sportbike rally. Muzzy sponsors a run down a airstrip for $5 Canadian with a radar gun. I would love to post a 11.0, but I would be happy anything less than 11.5, which the bike magazines post for 1/4 mile times for a ST. With the K&N and Two Bros mods and a little skill, i may be in luck.

I ran an 11.6 at 122mph on my tt600. I launched slow (2.0 60' time). I think it would run a 10.9 with a hard launch.

I thought you said your car was fast???
