My 02 12 has a full hindle system, PC3 and an RSC damper. It weighs 530 with a full tank of gas w/o me. Im 220 and my friend is about 190.
....I have ridden the 07 Gixxer 1000 and believe me, they are no slouch....in the first few gears I couldn't really tell which was faster! :shock: Keep in mind my 12 weighs 465 w/a splash of fuel and a bottle hooked up. We weighed his and it was 420 w/no fuel and a slip on....fortunately he weighs a good 30-40 more than I, so total weight is about even :wink:
Moving on, in 6th gear roll-ons, w/me -1 up front, he floats away
a couple of bikes...then we lock eventually. In all other gears I get him....and the lower the gears the better for ME as I don't get the wheelies he does
Your friend is 30 pounds lighter than you, + his bike is potentially 100 pounds lighter on a given day. 130 pounds! :shock:
Bro, I can sit here and lie to you saying oh yeah, adjust your power commander, regear, lighten up the bike a little....but the fact of the matter is you are significantly up on weight.....
No economical way around it: Dry nitrous kit. 40 shot will put you out ahead. :wink: Before you cry about not wanting to spray your bike LOTS of people on here including me spray a 40 shot w/no probs. Colder plugs, premium pump gas, bump up the fuel on your power commander accordingly and go!
I would go with a 17 tooth, and spraying the moment you shift into 2nd should be ok w/wheelies if you keep your weight forward, but try 3rd first as I think you are stock height.
Remove your mirrors, signals, bar ends, rear footpegs/brackets, rear fender surgery, and pick up some BMC race filters to help your bike breathe better.
Dry nitrous kits are ridiculously cheap now. Check out Cold Fusion (skinart on the board here sells em) and dynotunenitrous is also very inexpensive.
Best of luck!
