Put down my friends R1

Well, it took a lot of convincing, but I finally got him to the strip. He's got an 04 R1 with a gutted cat and power commander. He kept talking about how much more power he had. Well, my stock 10 (sorry, i've got the seat cowl) spanked him by 1/2 second consistently. Ran 5 times. I loved it. Now I need to add mods. My best was 10.5, which i think is slow. I need to get into the 9's

I once said "Displacement was compensation for lack of skill. Therefore, there is no need for anything more than a well balanced 600." Right, who was I kidding.

He was running 11+ second quarters on an R1? lol!

If he was running 11.5, I just might catch him on my Harley.

If he was running 11.XXX's he just can't launch the bike. Lowered, with stock gears the 10R can get into the 9's, and I wouldn't doubt the R1 could too. Congrats on leaving better than him. Here's to you: [smilie=b:

On average no one will do the 0-60 or quarter mile like the pro's in a close circuit track without alot of practice on launches and body positioning. But those numbers sound sweet but I don't think u'll make nines as easy as u think. I bet u do better if u added more weight and got ur launch down pack. 10r,R1,1000r,G1k are too light so those times are hard to reach by the average joe. Wish u luck thou.

9's aren't that hard on a stock geared 10R, if it's lowered and strapped. Maybe they are on the R1 I don't know.
