Finally had my 10r out at the track. It ran a 10.4 @ 134. Not streched or lowered....the air sucked that night (6600 Density Altitude). If I had good air it translates to a 9.7

I was running low 10.6's all night consistant as could be. I tried a different launching approach and hit 10.4 first try...right as the track was closing.

what were your 60' times?

First time at the track?


Probably just need a little more practice and a better set-up....


Hell, my first night at the strip with my 12R I went 10.70'[email protected]

Next time..... I went 10.50'[email protected]

The time after that.... I went 10.30'[email protected]


Then the next time .... I went [email protected]





The only thing I changed was a 1.25 inch drop, straps, and the way I rode it..... same 175rwhp.... Same weight.... Same gearing (190mph worth lol!!!).... Same map.... Same tire.



I'm sure with more practice I'll be in the 9.90's with my fat 230+ pound ass..... untouched motor...stock arm... no nitrous.


Same way I'm sure with more practice... you'll be doing the same.



Congrats on the 10.4 though!

Rickey Gadson

Jul 2005 Super Street Magazine stuff...

Ricky Gadson ran a 9.05 on his personal ZX-10R (page 77 under 1000 SuperSport)...that mofo is fast. And that's with the stock mudflap and tailights still on it. The only bad thing about the whole article and picture is that his ZX-10R is orange.

So how badass is the ZX10R when Ricky Gadson has one as a personal bike.

It's one of his many race bikes. His "personal" bike is a Mean Streak. How badass must the Mean Streak be if Rickey has one as his personal bike :lol:
