I've ridden with a buddy on his R6 and me on my F4i plenty of times. . it wasn't that much faster than the F4i. I'll buy the 9 second time, but he must have had a ridiculous 60' b/c he's not trapping over 130mph.

Sorry I was gone for the weekend, but

OK, I'm at work now...got the mag at home. I believe it was in Cycle World (or Motorcyclist) the only two I get.

It was a six bike 600cc shootout...I still don't believe it myself, but it was in print so it must be true. :skep: :lol:

someone got some money out of this one, if a stock 600cc bike can do a 1/4 in less then 10 sec, whats the point of getting a liter bike.

what kind of set up where htey using? a 1/4 mile messured by somoenes foot steps and a with a stop watch waiting for the bike to move to start it and then stoping it as the bike crosses the spray painted line. lmao.
2Furyus i believe that there is an artical i just dont beleive that its true. lol

I saw that in the cycle world, he did change the sprockets and lowered the front end... all together about 200$ in mods... but they did say he ran I believe it was a 9.89 or 9.98 on a ZX6R... so maybe it's true...at least it's in print :lol:

Sub 10 sec off a 1/4 mile cliff mabye-
May be it can be done by a Bad A$$ rider... Twisty appears to be that type of rider... to be able to show up many people... on, no matter what bike he's on... so I believe it's possible... with the right rider... :thumbs:
