A little testing ( stockwheel base 08 zx10 )
Some of you know that my 08 zx10 has run 9.18 @ 148 setting at a little over 61 inches , air shifter , geared to hell with 15 /41 gears .. Also stripped of mirrors and rear pegs ...Well it was no fun riding on the street with all the mods so i put it all back to stock but for the pipe and P/C ...
My only mods now are A Brocks alien head and his street map , lowered rear and 1 1/2 in the front ...Pump gas with the factory air filter in place , factory tire at 28 psi and stock gears..foot shifting with the clutch..
I have only made a few passes with the bike at stock wheel base , i can pretty much count the runs i have made at stock wheel base on one hand..The best run stone stock with 23 miles on the bike was a 9.97 .. I went to the track tonight and got 7 runs in before the rains came and was pretty happy with the out come ...My best of the night was ...
1.62 60 footer
6.29 @ 118.45 1/8 mile
9.62 @ 145.55
I was getting faster each pass till the rain came down ... 84 degs and 88% humidity ( not great air) My hat is off to Kenny and Shine, it takes a real pro to handle a stock wheel base 1000 ...But i must say i had a great time trying to go fast with no extra wheel base ... I think it has more in it.. With some more runs i think i can get this thing in the 9.40s ... The trick is holding the clutch longer to get rid of the dead spot this zx10 has .( 0 to 8000 it a turd ).. My 330 times are killing me but with each pass learning what the bike wants ... More testing coming soon ...
8.77 @ 154
8.56 @ 163 with a 30 dry shot
