08 ZX-10 vs a bunch of Suzukis

Had a lot of runs tonight. First three were against a 2007 GSX-R 750.

Heres a breakdown:

Myself - 2008 ZX-10
Bone ass stock (ok - it has a Puig windscreen )
290lbs rider

Travis - 2007 GSX-R 750
Full Akrapovic Exhaust ($2000 worth)
Power Commander 3 - full Custom map
520 conversion with +2 on the rear sprocket
Air filter
TRE
Speedohealer
134rwhp
150lb rider

Out of three we only got one clean run in per say. He said he didn't hear me honk - which is believable. It was a 60mph roll-on. Anyways, he said he took off after I did and while I was not pulling away, he said he was not pulling me in. Basically, had we took off at the same time we would have been side by side.

Last runs:

Myself vs:

2006 Hayabusa
Air Filter
Brocks Alienhead full exhaust
Power Commander 3
Stretched - probably about 5-6 inches
225lb rider

50 roll. We were side by side from the start (50) until about 140 or so where he ever so slowly crept out on me. Side by side for the most part. When I shut off at 165 he was out maybe 1.5 bikes or so. He said he started in third gear - which I know is a crock of shit. He said later in the night he never went wide open - which is also a crock of shit. It won't take much mod wise to take care of him - just a front sprocket, OR PC3, OR exhaust - only need 1 of the 3 LOL!

Now, that's what I like to hear....

+1.. I would assume it was because of the 290lb rider, but then if you turned around a kept up with the Busa that doesn't make sense.

i mean i understand that a 750 or 600 can keep the throttle pinned all the way to redline without any hesitations, whereas, in a liter, you'll be 12'o clocking in no time; so i can see that being the reason...... but still, a 750 is putting down atleast 40hp less than a liter

come on guys, a Gix 750 with those mods can get over 170mph really quick. It weighs like a ZX10R 1st gen(now much less with the pipe), the guy has a 115lb advantage and over 30lb advantage bike wise or much more if the 08 10R is pure stock...so lets play the conservative card ~ 150lbs total +....that's a +21hp gain for the 750 which now would make it a Race.....see equal mathematics can make sense sometimes.

I guess, I'm not saying that logic is flawed...so why did he keep up with the Busa then?
