    New 1/4 time

    Went to the track last night. Heard rumors of this; back to back runs. By the time I picked up my time slip I was immediately back on the staging line. In a matter of 30 min, I completed 9 passes. My bike never had a chance to cool down. This time around I took off my windshield and saddle...

    Went back to the 1/4

    Made it back to the 1/4 mile track friday. Got 5 runs in. First I have to say its quite humbling to race the 1/4. There were 4 other bikes, the slowest of which ran mid 9's at 140+. I'm still working out my carb tuning so I really didn't know what to expect. The best I could pull off was an...

    Setting all four A/F blindly to 2 1/4 turn. Is that OK?

    Setting all four A/F screws blindly to 2 1/4 turn. Is that OK? Hi Appreciate your comments and suggestions. I'm really not knowledgeable enough about carb. Anyway here's the story. Stock carb, custom exhaust. The PO messed up. Carb setting was way off. On idle the bike seemed to be...

    Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R - King of 1/4 Mile

    Saw the first test of this bike in MOTORCYCLIST, Mar 2012. At the press release in Las Vegas Rickey Gadson turned a 9.61 @ 149.83 on a bone stock bike on his 1st pass. Later, Kawasaki supplied Rickey with a lowered bike with 2 LESS teeth on the rear sprocket (but otherwise stock) and he...

    Are these 1/4 stats accurate?

    84-90 = 10.8 91-98 = 11.7 99-04 = 10.8 2005 = 11.7 Why the flucuation? and also from what Iv'e read, 107-113 rwhp is what is the norm for an 85, not reported 120. I hate the fact that people think just because you read it on the net...ergo it's true. My 85 has 12,500 K on it w/ ufo pipes, K/N...
