My questions are this. What would be considered a great 60 foot time on a box stock unlowered unstrapped totally untouched ZX12? Now, how much of a bearing does rider weight have on this number. In other words can a 120 pounder and a 220 pounder of equal skill cut equal 60 foot times? What Iam getting at is how can a heavy guy know if hes riding good or are his times are just slower everywhere because hes heavy.

If the bikes have the same power curve and rides are at the same skill level,The one with more total weight will be slower.

Unless traction is a problem. But nothing is ever equal, so improve your power to weight with more power!

rider weight can play a reasonable difference in ET given all other conditions are equal; unfortunately no two riders are identical so its hard to make a claim based on weight rather than skill level.



As for your question about a 60' times unstrapped, again depends on rider skill. I would say a 1.7 to 1.85 isn't uncommon from the average rider but have seen 1.6s from better riders with an unstrapped 12.



Low 1.6s are common with a good rider and a strap stock wheelbase; add some wheelbase and low 1.5s or high 1.4s are possible depending on the rider.
