1\4 mile times

Im just curious what 1\4 mile times you guys are getting? Im talking about regular riders, Not pros. Please be truthful. Im thinking of getting a fourteen, but if its not much faster than my 12 (1\4 mile ), im not gonna waste my time. And are the clutches holding up? thanks rick

1/4 mile times

What's up everyone? Well man I will be truthful to you on my friends 02 model ZX12R the fastest that I have ever been on it was 9.37 @ 146.5 60ft are 1.58 1/8 5.95 @ 120.0MPH this particular setup was @ 62" I am 215lbs in leathers. On mines the best that I have ever done are similaiar to the time that u see above with the same setup. My bike is a 01 model ZX12R but this year when its finished it will be going a lot faster. The 01 ZX12R was @ 61".

You really need to say if you mean a box-stock bike when asking this question. There are already enough variables in the equation such as rider weight, ability, track surface, wind conditions and so on to make any comparisons impossible. Then you've got different levels of tune and set-up on top of that. !!!!

I agree but what I meant was you can't really ask the what'll-it-do question without some qualification. It's a bit like asking how long is a piece of string.

I agree, also I would think a big number of these scooters will remain bone stock. I see busa's all the time with the factory pipes. I hope somebody will report the bone stock numbers and then start adding the available goodies one at a time and going to the same dragstrip under mostly the same conditions, and see what does what. If you add several things at once, it will be hard to understand.

box stock in albuquerque nm.
rider weight 230 lb's
no gearing changes, strapping, etc as deliverd

99 hayabusa stone stock 10.8's 132 mph with low 1.8 60 ft
00 and 02 zx12r all stock 10.8's 132-133 mph. same day , same rider(me) interesting the 02 ran about a 1/2 mph better.
06 zx10r all stock. 10.8's @133-134 mph. horrible 1.93- nearly 2.0 60ft's. clutch started getting grabby.
06 gsxr1000 10.9's @132-133 mph. The 06 zx10 traps a little better mph.
06 zx14 (all stock) going to the strip soon)
Keep in mind everyone of these bikes are times from the very first time i ran each of these bikes at the strip. I've actually have run alot better on all the above bikes but this is for comparison purposes.

As for my skills im no pro but ive been drag racing for years. I usually run low 1.7's on my stock height stock wheel base zx12 at a mile high track with air density as high as 9000+ feet.
____________
9.78@155.13 mph 1.71 60 ft @ a near mile high dragstrip

2006 ZX14 gone
2006 ZX10r (Wifes street bike)
2004 zx10r (her race bike)
2002 ZX12 (still kicking a--)

I will be taking mine to the strip and running it stock for a baseline and then again after pipe, PC, etc...

I rode my stock 1988 zx10 to 10.76 in the 1/4 when I first got it and 10.20s after pipe, gearing and jetting, but it only has so so power, this bike has mad power!!!!!.

I had an 89 ZX10, a very fun and comfortable bike, although very heavy and center of gravity seemed like it floated about 3 feet above my head on that beast. I ended putting 36000 miles on that thing before I sold her.

I saw at Jason Miller's Dragracing Seminar, a red ZX-14 with an stock exhaust, with an average bike rider weighing perhaps 200 lbs, clocking 10.4s. After many tries, he got it down to 10.0. His partner, also having a back ZX-14 with an aftermarket exhaust, 4'' extension, and maybe a PCIII, turned high nines on some runs, low tens on others. He too, weighed around 200 lbs. I then saw a professional rider take the black bike in the mid-9s. Now the same professional rider was 2d in points at the time (Prostar) for his class (Super Street I think) and had his 1000 GSXR turing 8.99 this day. It's the rider that counts the most1 Brock I think turned only 10.3 before setting up his ZX-14, and with a lowering strap, 9.9, with the bike Brock'ed out, go 9.3s. Tip: Go to Brock's ZX-14 Diary web page to get an idea of how the bike works in different configurations with a half-way competant 185 lb rider.

Stock 06 just lowered 10.02...I was 230 suited.
This year i went a 9.28 at 64" with pump gas,sidewinder and PC3 and airshifter.
I gain weight last year and was close to 240 suited....this year im hitting the gym hard and already down 15 pounds. I'm trying for 180 pounds suited for next year. I wanted to go 8's but i guess that will have to wait till next year. I only had the bike to the track twice with it stock...my guess i could have gone 9.90-80's....I'm no pro but i would give my riding skills a B+.....

Thread dig: So what have we learned?

My times:

First pass ever in jeans (before getting booted off the track): 10.70@138
Got some pants: 10.16@146
Only one pass on it lowered: 9.89@142

Very few passes, but I seem consistent. My mods have always been full exhaust, pciii, flies pulled, air filter.
