So my buddy just got a brand new gixxer and he was itching to get it on the highway against me. So we were riding the other day and he starts giving me the eye and I knew what it meant. We were probably doing 70-80mph both of us in 2nd gear when we started the pull. I got the jump in the start but it was short lasted, he continued to pull on me the entire time. I have never seen a bike pull on me that bad. Now I probably have at least 50 pounds on my buddy but I've raced smaller kids before and never had a problem. Both the bikes were more or less stock, besides the megaphones. I want to change my gearing to -1/+2 and see if it makes the difference.

Those two bikes come down to the rider and gearing, all things being equal it should be neck to neck.

I raced a 08 gsxr 1000 last week for say 80-90 kph 2nd gear roll and pulled on him no problem even gave him a bit of a head start which really didn't help him much. 50 pounds is quite a bit.

What is so fun about it? I guess I just dont understand. It doesnt prove anything at all and it puts other people in a dangerous position

There nothing wrong with controlled street racing. Not around cars. This is in reference to straight line. And personally my local track is more dangerous than the street, and I'm not kidding.

Stock for stock a gsxr is geared lower I believe. I'm -2,+2 and buddys 1000 is -1, +2 and his back sprocket has a higher tooth count while were both at 15 up front. That will have some effect
