2011 zx10r 1/4 mile time

Ricky gadson just posted this timeslip on his facebook "this is what the new zx-10r is capable of with an average joe rider and very little mods like removing the catalatic convertor and removing the secondary butterflies.

152mph is freakin movin! Everyone with a 4th gen needs to remove those secondaries. This trap speed and et should finalize that arguement. Lots of potential in this bike. Stretch it,strap it,full exhaust, gear it and I bet 8's are not a problem along with those seconsaries out. Gadson knows his Kawasakis like no other.

When I was racing stock wheelbase I was getting in the 1.69s about my 5th time to the track...

Considering ricky gadson can hit 1.51s and better stockwheelbase, I would say its average for you weekend dragracer.

Your average RIDER wont be able to get that on there first time to the strip but with a few trips, probably would get close.

Ricky Gadson is an "average joe rider" just like Ben Spies is an "average joe rider". Different field of experience, perhaps, but not exactly the "average joe" ...

Skinny lightweight riders have a huge advantage, too.

At test and tune days around here, the "average riders" and "average bikes" - Stock wheelbase stock ride height no stretch no lowering no strap no silly gearing no nothing - are doing more like 1.9 60-ft times (that includes me) and I have trouble keeping the front down even at that ...


Helibars, MRA screen, Ohlins damper, reversed shift pattern, sorted suspension, braided lines, Michelin Pilot Power, all else stock 'coz it's fast enough!

Im pretty sure they lowered and strapped the bike....the way his facebook post sounded was that it wasn't him on the bike.

I consider myself an average rider and when I first started stockwheelbase I was having trouble keeping the wheel down and was 60 footing 1.89s, bit then I learned how to be smoother and smoother with the clutch and got those times down in the 1.6s without the front wheel even leaving the ground...

I'm more impressed with the mph of the bike than the time, like you said we don't know the weight of the rider. If his 180 pounds then the mph is impressive, if he's 125 then it may not be so impressive.

You can have a 1.9 60' and your mph is not going to change all that much, you will acually make more mph with the slower 60'

to do high 1.50s 60ft on stock wheel base bike is hard as hell! The guy that was riding the new 2011 zx10r is either not a drag racer or the bike wasnt lowered and strapped!
