Sounds like some one on the 08 can't ride worth a darn .Or he weighs 350 pounds .. My 08 with the same mods ran 9.18 @ 148 :headshake

That 08 should probably be around 9 flat. Didn't Gadson run a stock wheelbase 08 under 9 seconds? Not to mention that gearing, that sounds crazy.

I want to take my 08 to the strip... It's swb stock height but I'd like to think I could hit those numbers... I did 11.0 on an 03 636 with a slippy clutch and this bike is a hell of a lot faster than that one.

9.0s on the 08? Hmmm That would be pretty hard to do on stock motor butnot impossible!
Nah it was posted awhile back, I could search for it if you want but it wasn't stock. It looked to have full exhaust, someone said pcIII, lowered f&r. No idea as far as gearing but it wasn't stretched.

I'll try to dig it up. Pretty sure the thread title was Rickey G goes 8.92 on an 08 or something like that.

Ugh...I'm lost again...it's not that late here either.:lol:

On topic though, what should that 08 be running that he's talking about? Even with a decent 180lb rider, that 16/48 combo and stretched swingarm should make for some pretty fast times right?

the only thing that can possible explain it(if a decent rider was on board) would be that they were sitting on a Colorado Track 1mile high from sea level or the 08 rider weighed like Hemi said 350lbs...but I doubt it...I think it is what it is unfortunately. :badteeth:

Guy riding was about 200lb. Im not a pro drager or anything but even I could muster a fast time just mashing the gas, but just telling what I saw. Track is in OH. If I feel like it I'll post the vid of the first run.

The ss bikes are not like a stock bike by a long shot. There is a lot of work gos in to the motor. If you go a 9:70 0n a stock swingarm bike that's fast.
