Sup guys... I have a 98 R1 stock (cept damper and steel lines). My buddy just bought a 01' gsxr 750 (slipon pipe). Who's gonna win that race? 1/4 mile? twisties as far as the bike goes?.. Also what would be a good mod to for me to do to get the edge on him? Thanks

Weight reduction is the key factor, wear minimul gear, with flip-flops, tank top & shorts, you should have no problems :yesnod

Why don't you just go out there and find out??

If you want an edge, take a performance riding course...

How well does he ride? Or you for that matter? Go practice your hole shot. If you can keep the front end down with the maximum amount of throttle, he can cancel it.

On paper, stock for stock, the R1 is faster. But its really up to the rider :yesnod

Those are some surprising stats for me! Am I reading this right, the R1 is faster in the 1/4 than the ZX12 and Busa?

Looks like it is really sucking in horsepower and and top speed though:(

They must have had some stoned riders :lol I remember the ZX-12 having a 9.8 1/4 mile time just above the G1k's 9.7? Something like that it was very close. The rider on the R1 actually did better than the one in Motorcyclist mag. I think they had the R1 at 10.2



As for the GSXR 750 against your R1, you would be surprised how quick the 750's are. They didn't dominate for such a long time for nothing....and especially with a good rider on it. You'll just have to go out and see what happens!!! :thumbup
