Your bike weighs alot less. Depending how much you have stripped from it and how much you weigh, can add or subtract to the formula.

Take a risk, and you may lose. Never risk, and you will always lose.

A 2009 modified R-1 is fast. The Stock R-1 2009 I think was the slowest of the Japanese shootout for 2009.

2005 Zx10 is a light weight brutally fast bike. The 2009 R-1 is a nice street bike but I think your bike is faster not just saying that because I am a kawi guy.

yeah only reason why I ask this is cause if hes gettin ready to go high speeds on a r1 so fast just be careful.

theres a lot of variables about racing rider weight, bikes, tune, mods and so on.... only one way to find out!

6 month before he is good enough to race his 2009 R-1
He is very smart

its far from his first fast machine...i only rode it home because it was a good distance away and has no license so it would be stupid to ride without one. im sure he will put 10k miles on the bike in that time frame anyways so yea 6 months will be good enough time. hes smart guy, lol its funny how some people are on here
