Fastgas, That information is wrong.05 10R
1st gear 2.533 ratio.....95.6 mph
2nd gear 2.053 ..........117.9
3rd gear 1.737 ..........139.4
4th gear 1.524 ..........158.9
5th gear 1.381 ..........175.3
6th gear 1.304 ..........185.7
Results are miles per hour. Based on rear tire circumference of 70 inches, engine RPM of 13500 and 100% efficiency .......... ie no clutch or tire slip.
Remember the larger bikes (busa, 14 etc) are not only heavier, but geared higher (205 IIRC). Bolt an 18T on a 10r and see what happens.
you already said that in post 53 of this thread:Gearing, Gearing, Gearing.
2009 Kawi GEN III ZX10 is #1.MagicMavis! The 2009 edition performace bike magazines is not fair. I belive the GSXR 2009 has the most accleration from 0-100mph. I belive it becasue i rode 3 diffrent models of GSXR1000 (I rode many other sizes of GSXR as well). The GSXR1000 is so smooth at high speed, there is no other bike like GSXR1000. Engine is quite, the bike and riding position is so aero dynamic and the engine is incridibly smooth with less vibration than any other bike at high speed (160mph +). The GSXR actually gives you brave to ride fast (it is that smooth).There is absloutly nothing like a GSXR1000. The engine blown out (the magazine said) is not a good excuse. Suzuki quality is not so high but Suzuki made 1000cc superbike before most of those bike didn't have any 1000cc superbike. Never forget the experience. No other bike gives you the feeling of a GSXR. it is that good when you ride it you dont' want to get off the bike.
If that's so important to you, and is what makes you happy go buy a 2009 Yamaha R1. Then you should be the happiest person in the world. But be fore-warned, I tired that. I wasn't happy with the over-weight under-powered pig, but yeah man it won some races and a championship. But thinking about all the races it was winning, didn't make me smile when I was out riding it. :spit:
I dont think I ever smiled once from the day I rode it out of the dealership, I mostly frowned, then grimaced, then turned to anger, all in about a 2 day span.
