My Mph the last 2 seasons have always been 127-130 I dunno man "how it happens" I just know that another friend on mine would run that or faster and his speed would be about 126'.........../shrug I dunno man I just twist the wrist and go. When I get the rest of my stuff from MI I can scan more of the timeslips. I don't have any of them scanned anymore.

IAN and the R1 cant get off the line, plus fastchic probly weighs 75-100lbs less than IAN. If Ian couls get off the line and a good 60 foot he would be in the mid 10's at about 135

good enough for me. That's just the highest trap speed I have even seen for a mostly stock 600. Good job fastchic. You should drag my Bandit1200. I know it should run 10s. With a 230lb anchor like myself..I am not so sure :D

A BUELL, why step down, whats the fastes one like 12's at 112mph,
I guess I should say it won't be stock for one and second to me it isn't a step down. Its a different machine. If you haven't ridden one maybe you should you may be surprised at the handling of a XB9R

Could be elevation differences also. I've personally never seen a 600 at my track run over a 120-122mph trap speed, and I've seen quite a few running in the 10's.

But I do suck launching this bike, though I personally feel it's the jetting and lack of EXUP that crushes any hope of really nailing a launch. I have to be perfect to do it, obviously I can't be perfect ;). I think my best so far is a 2.0xx 60'.

I weigh probably 250lbs with gear that doesn't help.

Also in Michigan it isn't as humid as in FL and I would run while it was 60 out and get most the really good times :) Yea and Ian weighs 130lbs over me :laughing

snow god

SNOW GOD... it will run in the mid 10's , depends on when I hit the NOS and if the front rises. I am getting real bad headshake all of a sudden, since I lowered the front in the clamps. Right now Im hitting the NOS in 3rd, shifting at a safe 10-12K rpm so I dont hit the rev limiter and gernade the engine, Im working on some way to bypass the rev limiter on the nitrous. Here is a pic of the controls. If you have been in here Im sure these are something you have seen already. Must say, no track times yet, the times are on my G_TECH, whic is pretty accurate. Lost by a new R1 by a few bikes, got an ichy finger and hit the NOS in 2nd and wheelied.
