Getting Smoked

I have a '06 ZX10 stock except for my -1 front sprocket. My friend has a '06 stock Yam R1 with aftermarket pipes. I constantly get my ass kicked on straight aways. We can do 2nd or 3rd gear rollons and I get smoked....even at the top end. I start at about 8000 to 8500 rpms for the rollons.

Something wrong with my bike or what?

If you are "Getting Smoked" then there are 1 of 2 things wrong.

1) The Rider
or
2) The Bike

I'd put my money on (1). The R1 should not be smoking you with only exhaust, plain and simple. Especially since you have -1 in front and are just doing roll-ons. You really think your good and the problem isn't you? Then run it on the dyno, chances are that run will probably hurt your ego. Sorry, it sounds harsh but it is what it is.

Plus besides the rider, you may wanna check to see if he's hitting the juice.

You could be right.... he speed shifts and can wheelie his bike without having to think about it.

I was going more by the '06 shootouts articles where the zx10 always seemed to endup on top.
