    Uh, Most of those supersport racing bikes should be able to beat that 2.6 secs. 60 mph is chicken feed. you don't even have to shift out of first. If you look at the 1/4 mile times, you'll see that the only way to get those sub 11 sec. times is to get to 60 mph in at least 2.6 secs.

    Check the mags and the numbers. I did this with a Motorcycle Analyzer the takes quite a few things into account. Do I actually have the skill to pull off that sub 11 sec quarter mile time ? Probably not, nor have I tried. I have seen time slips from others who have. But we're talking about the bikes here, not the rider.

    Also, based on some technical research a bunch of us have done on the FZ1OA, your right . . silver is technically faster, but my wife loves the blue

    It is about the same, except that 100 mph happens real fast on the ZRX. Seriously, though, I'm still breaking mine in so I haven't gone over 80-85 yet. And I really can't say for the 7s because I have the naked 7 with a Rifle fairing. Tom

    I dunno Stan, we've all seen some pretty fast bikes sitting on a kick stand with a guy standing next to it that looks "race ready" and doesn't have the skills to really even have a bike like that on the road.... but I think I understand that you're talking of folks that can ride (instead of just "pose").

    Exactly, I was using the Motorcycle Analyzer to take out all the rider variables. I mean, I haven't heard of anyone actually get a 10.44 Quarter mile on the FZ, but Motorcyclist has it doing a 10.57. That's pretty close my numbers and you have to consider that they are using a stock bike.

    BTW, The stock ZRX did it in 10.70 secs.

    ZREX vs FZ1 -
    Looks like you guys could use one of those dyno-racer units like they have at bike week. They strap down two bikes side by side. The owners are riding the bikes and there is a 1/4 mile drag style light tree on each side. Go on green, and the machine registers the speed and the 1/8 mile and 1/4 mile times and top speed. It's a sweet and safe way to race head to head on your bike without worring about the asphalt.
    Keep the shiney side up!

    .....Dyno season is coming up soon. I'm pretty sure Snipe closes in another couple weeks. They're not real good once the weather warms up.....

    Hmmmm

    Is it just me, or does "Super" Stan's avatar have him looking like he's wearing a yellow cape? Maybe that's why his bike is so fast. According to a 2001 test the ZRX 1200R hada 0-60 of 2.9 and 1/4 mile at 10.85-113.4 horsies and top speed of 149 but that might only be because it was a super slow green
    As for the FZ 0-60 in 2.7 (guess you weren't so far off ) 1/4 mile in 10.62 and 125 horsies...top at 154 mph, and it was blue.

    At this point in time I would like to draw all attention to the fact that someone with a different coloured (Canadians put U's everywhere) bike voted silver as king of colours....I would like to have a moment of silence for this unprecedented event......

    Thank you, please return to your regularly schedule surfing.

    ZRx vs. ZR& windblast

    Hi Tomek,
    I have a naked Blue ZR but have ridden my friends 2001 ZRX.
    I have had my ZR to 85 on the highway and the windblast was
    pretty bad,mostly due to the jacket I was wearing. The same day I rode my friends ZRX,took it up to 95 MPH,only took about 2-3 seconds to get there from 65-70. The wind does not hit you as low(on the stomach) but it does hit you in the chest and shoulders. I am 5'11" and about 240lbs.
    I recently got my Joe Rocket Phoenix jacket and this wind is barley noticable.

    Okay everyone...it's time to remember that we are all friends here and we are all here because we love the joy of riding regardless of what one another ride. Now, just because someone chooses to ride another bike whose hp may or may not be more, doesn't matter. What does matter is that ......

    That's actually me in one of the new Laker warm-ups, The back is yellow and purple. Very sweet looking. That was right before the Lakers spanked the Spurs the first time.

    Those are with stock bikes. I did the analysis with my modded FZ and CrazeeCooters modded ZRX. That would explain the difference in the numbers.

    Because the "Color Wars" also exist on the FZ1OA, myself and another few Engineering types did some research. If you look into the physics of color and light, Silver should be the fastest color. The light should actually give it a little extra help

    The head-to-head dyno for Quarter miles sounds really cool. I'll have to be on the look out for one of those.

    Nice to see

    It's good to see that "Super" Stan is (like me) scientifically oriented. I can see that the silver wouldn't absorb the sun like other colours, but would a "cooler (and cooler may I add)" bike be faster? Perhaps black would be fastest at first because it doesn't take as long to warm up, but then the silver bullet would blow its doors off (see your green and black bikes don't have doors left after the silver bullet went by), the silver bike, like the General Lee is so fast it doesn't need working doors Ok that's enough of that, I'll let super-science Stan the man explain why silver rules, once and for all.

    BTW, I think Dylan can take on anyone in a green ZRX
