Fun with a K6

A friend of mine from work had a '03 R6 but got sick of the "big" bikes running away from him, so he finally opted a few months ago for a K6.

Over the course of the last few weeks, he put a slipon on, a PC, extended it, and a TRE. He started telling everyone how much faster it felt and started calling me out in front of crowds of people. I told him I was a little reluctant to race because I had a slick rear tire. This just spurred more "he's scared" rumors, etc.

A few days ago, I decide to cruise my bike around the block because I hadn't been on it in over a month and who do I run into? You guessed it.

We talked for a few minutes and I knew better than racing with a slick, but I couldn't back down.

We did 8 rollons. The first was from 30mph. He told me 3rd but I found out he was in 2nd after he left me by a LONG ways.

The second was from 30mph in 1st. Again, he was gone when I immediately broke traction.

The third was from 50mph in 2nd. He jumped me, but I pulled him in, passed him, and started pulling away.

Fourth thru Seventh time, much the same result.

Eighth time, we both hit it at the same time, but I was about half a bike back. By the end of 2nd, I had him by a full bike and the length grew as we went through the gears.

I have a full Arrow exhaust, mapped PC, extended 5 inches, and 1 tooth down in front.


Afterwards at work (YUP, I told EVERYONE!) he said he was REALLY dissappointed with his bike. He really thought his TRE slowed his bike down that much. Yeah, ok.....whatever.

I wasn't expecting to hand out a whuppin' like that! GO KING KAW!!!

That's how it will go with stock or similar modded bikes. This guy doesn't know how to ride his Gixxer.
