Do you think a Brocked out 14r with a lock up clutch,gear to redline 6th gear just after the traps ,wheelie bar,stock wheel base ,slick and a 130 lb rider would run 7.9 in the 1/4 mile.

Plausible , the 130 lb rider would want to be able to ride the pants off it and lighten the bike , or a good tail wind . They are a awesome bike .:thumbup:

The current record is what, 8.4 with a stock motor? Slick and wheelie bar would improve some... but not sure about 1/2 a second.

But with the whole package I was hoping for 1.2xx 60 footers.I would think it would be possible.........

Stolen off of facebook, current stock motor ZX14R record holder Lee Pritchard...



They say every tenth in the sixty foot is two tenths in the ET... so even if you drop to a 1.2 it's still going to be a challenge to get 7s... not saying it can't be done though. Just won't be easy!

Lee is also bypassing a lot of transmitted power to keep the front down in the first 60'. If we address the traction issue as well there could be enough torque to get a front half time commensurate with a sub 8 second ET.

To the best of my knowledge, Lee ran that with no wheelie bars and a DOT tire ... so, take out front end lift and traction issues ... I'd say its feasible and even probable.
