Not quite a Ninja but my 2011 z1000 best run with PCv and slip on's and quickshifter with a very ordinary pilot (me) did 11.08 over the 1/4
Nothing I thought was strange. NHRA Rules.Nice work! Did you have to do anything crazy, or unusual to be able to run? That's a time to be proud of...,,well done.
Three guys I work with all have V rods or a variant of and It was short notice but none could make it. their always talking about who is the fastest though so I hope with a little planning next year I can talk them into it.Thats pretty sweet! Can be a lot of fun to go out and do a test and tune or a bracket night, especially if you can wrangle some friends into going.
You are more than likely right and for a novice feel I did OK. Its just that need to know or possibility of what if that is tickling my curiosity and made me say it.As far as someone whos good, most everyone whos had the bike at a 1/4 track has come back with times in the 11 area....so, finding soemoen better might not be as easy as you think.
Manracing was a very good rider, and he was right at 11. Then again, he was heavier than average at @ 225lbs.
I had hopes of getting in more passes there, till what I felt was a solid run with the TC on and then switching it off and seeing if there was a difference. Didn't work out that way though so was still hearing the dreaded BAAP BAAP BAAP as I lifted the tire in second. Only lifted it once in first and that's when I was caught off guard with the pro tree, I've kind of been practicing those first gear launch's against these SS riders around here though so I should have it down.I did a 10.9 in Brainerd in the summer. I would imagine with the traction/wheelie control, you could do a pretty good amount better than that just because you're not stressed out about wheelie-ing over backwards. If you slapped a wheelie bar on one, short-term, I bet just about anyone could do mid-10s easily. Being quite torquey, and short wheelbase makes launching it pretty tricky!
Don't think I have enough man hood anymore ether to launch a bike at 10K. :crying:That's pretty cool! Never been much of a hard launcher, so I probably wouldn't break 11s. I have launch control on my Ape; you can supposedly take off at 10k rpm but there is no way in hell I'd ever try that LOL
