Finally did it!! ZX-10R 4, Gixxer 0, R1 0 !!
First time in about 12 yrs on a bike, I did 4 street drag races tonight. 2 against a 04 Gixxer 1000 and 2 against a 04 R1. Both bikes had sprocket changes and full exhaust.. Suz had Akra, and the R1 had Micron, with PCs.
Suzuki was first, first run was totally uneventful. I got the jump at the start of about a bike length and he never got any closer. Second run was even easier, the guy tried a bit harder and tried to get the jump but just ended up wheeling it. He was never even close.
R1 was a bit more of a challenge, first pass I got the jump again and held about half a bike length the whole way. I messed up on first gear and fully released the clutch too soon and bogged down a bit. Second run was closer at the start, we both left the line at the same time but I had better control and was able to pull a full bike length and a bit by the time I hit 3rd, after that he kept up.
Both guys asked the same thing after we were done.
"Dude, what have you done to your bike?"
Nothing, except a BMC airfilter its all stock with no PC or sprocket changes.
They didnt seem to believe me until I opened up my panels and showed them the sprocket numbers on the side.
Was a real rush to be racing again.
