I need to see this fabled ex-drag racer in action. I really don't wanna believe his zx could outrun a brand new r6, but I realize a good launch is all it takes. Let me know when this is going down.

Tom,

I'd be interested in going. Hopefully my bike will be fixed. Trust me guys, someone with drag racing experience and knows how to work the clutch makes a huge difference. A quarter mile only takes 10-11 seconds to pass through. If you can get an older zx-6r a half or full bike in front by the 60' mark thats alot of ground to make up for a new R6 in the remaining 8 or so seconds left. It's not uncommon for guys who have limited drag race experience to be 2 or more seconds off pace of their bikes protential or even or more experienced drag racer.

I once new a guy with a '96 or so RF 900. He had never been on a drag strip before and had a pipe/jet/big bore kit/head work/ and cams. The bike had some serious ponies for it's time. We went to the track together and I had a '92 gixxer 750 with some work done also but no more than his RF and much less in the hp department for sure. At the time I was doing an average 15 passes a weekend on the strip and another 20 or so on the street for a few years or so already. He was soooooo ticked when I spanked him 5 times in a row he took his bike back to the guy that built and demanded his money back Point is....if Tom has a good amount of drag racing experience my money is on him.

That, along with overall better technique, control over shifting, etc.

I was never much of a racer, but beat several cars and drivers in the old days on Slab Road that I should not have been able to beat. Those were not clock races, they were first from here to there, where ET and top speed meant nothing.

You are all gonna lose a lot of money. I want the bets up front, not decide to race me after I smoke someone then back down. I will have a MIN. of $2000 so place your bets in advance!

Robbies R6 is going to be walking the DOG on that old school relic.

I sometimes have to use every HP from the FZ1 to pull on him. That bike flies man.... I've never seen a 600 move like that and I've never had a problem walking away from any other 600.


ZX6 --- prepare to have your ass handed to you.

I think CLSB needs a DRAGSTRIP day as well as track days. It's so much cheaper to go drag racing and think about the bragging rights, not that I'd get any, but it would still be fun as hell.

All you street racers come see the real numbers. Busa boys, come back up the rep so the Gix1K doesn't have it too easy.

Problem is RT. 66 sucks. Lets pay $25 so we can sit in the staging lanes for hours and the workers there are pricks. We need to go to GLD or 41.

Also nice for those of us without NHRA legal bikes, their tech sucks at 66.

Like BSing at Strat's for hours? If we have a good group there it's not so bad. What do you need other than a chain guard?

It may not be so bad during the week. The chain guard is another issue. I still gotta get one. I have to see when my chain and sprockets get here Roger. I think about it then.

Does a carbon fiber chain guard count?

I didn't know you needed a chain guard, too. I was answering crazeinc.

BusaDave, the rulebook says steel, aluminum, or the stock chain guard. Luckily your bike came with a "stock" CF chainguard. So you going to bring the beast out?

Sure I don't mind hanging out, but when I pay money to hang out I like to make the most of it. Especially when I go to the strip I'm in the mood to go racing...a lot. The chain guard is my only problem right now, but since it's 66, I wouldn't put it by them to not let me ride because of a textile jacket.

Probably not for the 15th, but I'm thinking of making a couple of runs. Even with a shitty launch I know I'm faster than 120 so I definately need leather and kill switch.

An aquaintance who knows my bike said forget the launch and just go for the top speed target. He said he'd be really surprised if I didn't top 150.
