What\'s the 1/4 time?? GSXR1000

Just need a little info, to shut some idiot's mouth.

He's claiming that a 01' GSXR1000 only runs 10.9 @ 134.
I somehow, don't believe that at all...

Back of Motorcyclist magazine "hard numbers" listed it at [email protected] completely stock. With a pro in the saddle.

Now, your normal everyday rider isn't going to pull that off without some serious practice.

Let other people be right sometimes...it soothes them for being nothing else!

Last summer I saw a guy do 10.5 @ 134 mph. the problem was keeping the front wheel down! 3rd gear power wheelies at 100+ mph are sick!

if you go to the drag racing forum you'll see guys that go to the track alot pulling in low 10's high 9's with stock motors and swingarms. with maybe some mods (pipe, gearing etc) and strapped.

I have yet to see one go slower than a 10.5

They are all in the 10.2-10.4 range with average riders.

I saw some numbers between 9.7 and 11.2. Just depends on the rider.

First rule of driving, what is behind me is not important!!

Does elevation really play a "big" factor? And could you gain 0.5 seconds at sea level vs. 2000 ft?

Remy- yes, elevation does play a big factor, and I think your guess sounds reasonable. I live in Denver, and I think drag times go down about 1-1.5 here (don't quote me) /images/icons/wink.gif When I go up riding in the mountains (up to maybe 12,000 feet) the power loss is incredible, even at 1-2000 feet above Denver(5280').

I plead the 5th

My friend did a 10.438 and he couldn't keep the front end down. My friend's Camaro SS ran a 13.48 here in Tucson, next week we went to Phoenix and he ran a 13.002. Nothing was done to the car to change the performance. Both days were with a 1/4 tank of gas. The car is an auto so it wasn't that he got better or anything. So yes, elevation, air temp, humidity, and even different tracks can make a difference in times. To make a completely accurate comparison, everyone would have to run on the same track the same time. I did an 11.323 on my R6 in Tucson......time to go to Phoenix!! Let's go 996TLR.

Re: What\'s the 1/4 time?? GSXR1000

my 1/4 times on my gsxr600 was like [email protected] or somethin like that. I read that the best that my bike will do is 10.3, of course this was the first time I ever drag raced a motorcycle before so I knew I wouldn't get in the 10s.

12.8 at 128mph??? Doubt it... That's liter bike type trap speeds. A friend of mine never ran down a track before on anything and ran an 11.7 with his bonestock YZF600 at 117mph. Notice the trap speed. Granted the Gixxer600 is loads more powerful be not 11mph more powerful.

It just doesn't add up.

well... I am more certain on the time than I am on the speed. But I do know that the bike was tested at around 135 at the 1/4 mile in sport rider.

Not with you on it and certainly not in the 13 second range are you going to get that kind of trapspeed. You do know a Camaro can almost pull that time off. /images/icons/tongue.gif j/k

No way in the world any stock 600 is hitting 135 in the 1/4 mile.
