Ran my buddy's 06gsxr 1k and got smoked

I ran him twice and both times it wasn't even close, first I went from 3rd and he jumped me good, then I went from 2nd ( both around 60mph) and it was even worse, the bike felt like it was going to come up in second, maybe it's just in my head. Would I stock geared 2nd gen lift the front tire in second going flat out? I know it does it in 1st, I usually don't even mess in first, after 8k it just gets harry. I talked to him afterwords and I had nothing really to say, I know both of us should be close, he has a pipe and pc3, mine is all stock, but I really don't need anymore power, have to get used to it stock. Don't really want to do any runs on the hw for safety reasons, and track isn't open.

Sorry guys just venting, love my zx10r, just not too happy about losing a race, when I know it should've been close.

At that gear and speed he's gonna beat you ALL day. Get it in your powerband and pin that throttle, or "Ride the shit out of it"!!! Your probably a little scared of it also, correct????

Not saying your bike is faster but it seems like your riding experience played a part in this...your still getting use to ur bike so i'm positive your not using all the power in your bike efficiently ....practice practice practice...

Theres no way your gonna beat anyone roll racing if your leaving @ 60 mph in third gear. With my stock gearing on my First Gen i'll pin the throttle all day long from a 80 mph roll in second, and usally go from first @ 60 mph without it wheeling too much. my bike is light somewhere around 410 lbs and i only weigh 145. sometimes it pulls the front tire but you just have to get used to. i had to get used to being on one wheel or i would have never felt comfortable pinning the throttle in a low gear at low speeds, just my opinion.

gsxr 1k has more power, 2nd gens are for some reason a lot slower then first gens also.

and it sounds like your not a very experienced rider..

You just need to get some seat time in and learn how to float the front tire. At 60mph you should be leaving in 1st and coming out real fucking hard and going into 2nd real quick like. He's jumping out on you cause he's starting out in the right gear. Can you launch the bike from a dig? If not practice that too and run him from a dig. You should have no problem putting tha gixxer in your rearview mirror.


You Leakin Dawg!!

If both bikes have the same basic mods (exhaust,gearing, pcIII) and the rider weight is close, it will be a tight race at the end. He is going to pull you in a 3rd gear roll but speeds should even out by the top of 4th. You should be able to pull even by the top of 5th and 6th gear will be neck and neck. Granted, all of this depends on the rider skill to extract every ounce of performance from the bike. Those GSXR 1000's have great bottom end and midrange power. I have raced my buddy on a 2006 1k more times than I can count and he always pull me from the hit and I don't catch him until 5th gear. Our bikes both have full exhaust, pcIII, bmc race filter and dyno tuned with rider weights being close. It's always a tight race. Just my 2 cents and experience.

My '03 gixxer pulls harder down low, but my gen 3 has the better top end. I have noticed though that my gen 3 is deceptively fast because it's just an overall better bike. I have to wrestle more with the gixxer when it's being pushed hard so it feels like it's pulling harder...when a lot of that is just me trying to keep it on the road.

As said, it's mostly about gear selection how you're riding it.
