thats about right for a shorty! throw an arm on it and add 3-4mph!!



my ? is why/how do gsxr1000's run so much faster with the same work(our fastest zx9s around here run 147-149 on motor) cams alone will put a good 1000 rider into the 150's

i do not know about where you live, however as of now i have i bit to much for a stock gixxer 1000 with only a pipe and jet kit. i dont think you can go 4mm over on a gixxer 1000.

i do not know what kind of times i will be getting . i will soon see.but i do not think i will fear a gixxer 1000with cams, pipe, etc.

Jeff, are you building your own 998 kit? What pistions are you using and what compression? Are you dropping cams in or just degreeing the stock ones? I'm running the Muzzy kit and I degreed my stock cams.

just going with degreed stock cams. i understand there is not much to gain with the webb cams . i am doing the kit myself to save a little money and i have heard that the bore on the muzzy kit where not sized as per each indvidual piston causing a clearance differance between cylinders.

Hi guys. I am new to the sportbike world and this forum. I have been riding a 97 Heritage classic for over two years... and after taking it off the outside of a corner, I decided to change gears. <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)"> I now ride a 2001 zx9r and am loving it. This thing is insanely fast.



Now my question was are these speeds you are giving in a certain time or distance? I figured they must be since mine stock out of the box has gone 165, the only thing that kept me from going faster was a bad fitting helmet that started to shimmy on my head.



Oh yea, where is a good place to buy after market crap for my bike? I would like to enclose the tail(with the same color), shave the taillights down and add a hugger/chain guard.



Thanks guys,

I am glad to see a 9x forum

Forgive my ignorance here, but is 9man just looking to break 150 mph? What year is your nine? How many miles do you have on it? Does it smoke when you ride it? The reason I ask these questions is that you should be able to beat 150 mph on a zx6. My humble opinion is that you shouldnt need any expencive motorwork. Your bike should best that by 20 mph stock. You do realize there are 6 gears right?



Ride hard.

Fellas hate to bring up an old post, but I was lookin' back over old topics and BOOM. 1/4 mile lovers. Yeah baby!!!!

Have yet to put any mods on my bike. (Lowered and strapped) In 2002 1/4 mile quickest times where 10.68/131mph 1.83 60'ft 11,500 shifts and 10.62/127mph 1.75 60'ft 11,000 shifts. My 60' ft are lousy started the season 1.83 ended the season 1.75. I still have some learning and confidence to gain on the launch. Weight 190 w/o leathers

In 2003 I plan on adding a pipe, jet kit, advancer 4+, and losing some weight 10lbs. Haven't made decision on manufacters and combo's yet.
Expected times 10.4's or better with practice.

Might put the bike on a diet as well.
I do still take long rides and enjoy riding to work. Not looking to have a wild or expensive setup.
Any other tips gentlemen/ladies.

no runs yet

Seeing as how mine both stock for power and suspension set up for cornering, I'd be happy with a 10.5 in Houston. I ran a friend's 2000 zx9to a [email protected] after three runs, though.

Strip9R,
I've got a blue 99 that went 10.46 @ 133 with the same mods as you have and I weigh 240#'s so I'd say you have a great potential to go quite deeper in the 10's. My bike now has a personal best of 9.89 @ 137 with a 3mm stroke and 1.5mm big bore kit (991cc's), stock head, stock degreed cams, stock carbs. The bike has been 9.65 @ 140 with a lighter rider with only a dozen passes should get better with experience. I currently have a a 998 MTC kit that will put me at 1057cc's with the 3mm stroke that I'm building for a local 60" class, it's also getting a ported and polished head with big intake valves, 41mm Keihin FCR's, Web Cams, NOS, and shooting to make this 9Second9 and 8Second9, should be interesting. E-mail me if you have any other questions, I'd be glad to share my mistakes with you so that you can avoid them. D.

9sec9,
Those time are impressive, and the bike sounds stout. I would only line up against you in bracket competition. None the less, I believe the method to the madness is my 60' ft, its horrible. If I can get 1.6's out of the bike I will be pleased. What kind of 60ft did you have at the stock length? What pipe do you have on the bike?
I have heard great things about 9R's in Texas. (Highlands Kawi) I understand they can make 9's fly. Do you use, compete against, and or trouble shoot with them.
I will definitely keep in contact with you as I continue to build

Strip9R,
I had consistent 1.70's with the stock length, couldn't keep it from wheeling even with it strapped and lowered 3 down in the back. My sixty foots didn't improve until I stretched and went 1 down on the front sprocket because of my weight. Once I did that I had consistent 1.60's and even a few 1.50's. Now in it's current state after the motor work I had mostly high 1.50's and low 1.60's, I could launch it at 10K and just drop the clutch, that was when my times really dropped and got the best of 9.89 and ran consistent 9.90's. Now with my rider on there we went back to the stock gearing in front because he is so much lighter and we are still 60"ing in the high 1.50's and low 1.60's which is perfect for the bike because it doesn't wheelie in 2nd gear anymore, with the one tooth down on the front and such a light rider that thing went for the sky in 2nd every pass. Still have more work to do, but most of my homework now is on shock set-up and trying to put the HP's to the track. We run at night so traction is at a premium. I've got a Micron pipe on mine and it is the Horsepower king for the 98 and 99 models, but from what I hear they are not for the 00's and up, I hear alot about Akro's and Hindles for those year models, Lee's Performance in South Carolina has Dyno results at there site to reference. I do not build my own Motor's I leave that to a professional, but I tune it myself and dial it in to track conditions as best as I can. Where are you??? D.
