I was on the ride home last nite when I have a 2008 CBR1000 jump on me.We did a roll on from about 70 on.I immediately jump out on him 2nd gear about 3 bikes then it looked like he pulled up on me when i hit 4th but then I started creeping away again.He didnt have much to say about it.I kinda wanted to do it from a slower roll,or if my clutch had a lil more left in it maybe a dead stop run.:helmet:

yeah I had a 08cbr1000rr and with all the money I put in that bike best run I ever had on my sheets were 158, good bike in the mid-range but shity after 150 or so, with mine and gear out +2,-1 I would top out on my gps unit at 172mph, shity haha. I upgraded to my 09 zx10r, but yeah the 08 is technically slower top end than the 07 model, but good run, I ate a 08cbr1000rr and 09 r1 on saturday morning out west. It was funny!!!

How do you figure the 08 zx10r stock trim is the fastest 0-180mph bike out there, there was a magizine arcticle about it awhile back!

I was talking about the 07cbr1000rr vs the 08cbr1000rr, they lost some top end, I have seen stock bike vs. stock bike and the 08 will pull ahead threw 1-3rd but after the 07 has it. The old model just has a high top end, could be gearing but I never owned a 07

Dude that is spot on...

My buddy has the 08 CBR1000RR and my other friend with light mods on the 07 CBR1000RR eats him on topend. We all know the 08 ZX10 will show 189 on the dash so we don't need to go there:wink:
