All the bikes you mentioned are midrange powerhouses. Sure even with a full system you won't get close to the rsv or the ducati, but you'll get much closer to the yamis and blades. There's just no beating that 100+ ft-lbs of torque from ducati and the low-midrange grunt from the V4 on the ape. Like the other guy said you could go up another tooth or two in the back, but unfortunately, you might start losing out on the long straights....kawi keeps winning wsbk because the bike, when dialed in, is a monster with initial corner speed. I think you should concentrate on capitalizing on that strength :smile2:My bikes a gen4 with 5 bodykit.
Its got just slip on.
You can improve the midrange by full system and thinner head gasket but thats still not enough compared to the others.
Even an 2008 blade and big bang yam romp away from the zx10s out of slower corners and its very hard to get past them without a run up.
The ducati 1299 is unpassable on acceleration and the rsv4 is just rediculously fast out of corners.
Heres a 1:59 lap which im baffled by.
It was last flying lap of the session and i was out of puff and suffering with terrible brake fade.
I was so slow into turn 2 coz horrible fade into 1 but
i guess i just hit all my apexs and it added up to a good lap
My gen 4 still pulls gen 5's and just about any other bike on the track, barring they're a better rider and just carry more speed all around. Good tune, well setup bike and kit ecu, race gas, fresh stock motor, full exhaust.Finally got my shit together and did a trackday at snetterton in the uk.
First time on slicks and first time out with mupo shock.
When i got a clear track i could do aprox 1:59 laps which is good enough to qualify for british superstock 1000s.
Although im very happy with the times im also frustrated with the zx10r as i feel i could easily improve the times but the bike holds me back.
Firstly the slicks are higher profile which effects the gearing and even though im -1 and +2 at the mo its not enough for this track with this profile tyre.
Because the zx10r is badly down on grunt i was loosing time out of slower corners over every other modern 1000.
You need a long straight to recover time lost on corner exit which is so frustrating.
I also had brake fade issues which made no sense as the discs and pads are identical to my other set on my other wheels that never fade.
Just wanted to talk about it with you lot as my mrs doesnt understand what im going on about lol
Bikes are overrated.Lol. You make me laugh.
13 seconds off a full blown superbike record on a standard engined road bike is ok for me especially at snetterton.
Im happy with that.
If you would listen to people when you ask for advice, rather than just insist that you're right and they're wrong (why ask for advice in the first place, unless of course what you really want is confirmation/pity party), and getting super salty when you get shut down, you would probably be as fast as you think you are.Delete

I've had my ego checked many times by much faster and more experienced riders. One of my coaches pulled me off the track once to tell me my line was shit and that i wasn't smooth. I was miffed for the whole day, but the next day we hit the grind together and i made massive improvements.
Humble pie my friend, it doesn't taste good sometimes, but it will never kill you and will always make you a better if you're willing to eat it.
