Ron,
Any stock 5 year old Hyabusa will destroy this thing.

Add a wheeliebar to a Busa and they are into the Mid to LOW 9's STOCK.
Add a slick and its definately low 9's.

back in the early 80s a friend of mine built a Kawasaki KZ900 3 cylinder bike, (motor was professionally build by someone in CA. Big $ especially back then) he stretched the frame, and added wheelie bars and a slick, it run low 12s and I think it maybe got into the high to mid 11s. (this was home grown in south central nebraska, and a local welding shop did the frame stretching and made the wheelie bars, he built it in my garage) hell it was faster than my 67 GTO, I was running a high 12s my best time was a 12.87. I let him race my GTO, so he offered to let me race his bike, I didn't have the balls (we were racing at a 1/4mi strip) I passed on taking the bike down the strip.

I ran a 9.72 at 135 mph on a sled 2 years ago. Did all the licensing runs for my NHRA license, then sold the sled. Arctic Cat 1107 (900 cc bored to 1107 using 750cc Kawasaki watercraft pistons) Motor ran pump gas, and was completely trailable. Its a blast when you get in a gamblers race, and you spot a Corvette by 4 seconds, and beat him !

Actaully superstreetbike has an article 8hours to the 8's they took a brand new in the crate Busa and less than 8 hours later had it running 8's in the quater.
The V-rod is a nice bike but it is not a performance killing machine. Also it's sad that they were original designed to make the power that they are just now giving to the customers.

Harley-Davidson also doesnt tell you that the Engines used in the 6.9 sec. Pro Stock V-Rods are not Harley Davidson engines. The only thing they have in common is that they are Vtwins....same with the pro Stock Buells. The Suzukis are still using Suzuki cases

yeah but if memory serves me they are still using the old gs style case. and the Kawi's are using the old KZ style.
Also would someone please explain to me why the vtwin's get to use fuel injection but not the inline 4's? Is it because they know by allowing the vtwin's to use FI they can run a closer to the 4's or bet them. Or is it because Harley is dumping money into the campaign and the the Jap's aren't?

actually the Vtwins are ahead, either Hines or Tonglet will win 2005 championship,but if you read the rules, NHRA gives the Vtwins alot more room to work, you do have a point however,H-D is pouring money into the program & if I understand correctly, it sounds like Suzuki is about done factory backing.

from nhra.com

Pro Stock Bike
Page 160 (8/05)
Designation: Replace second sentence with, "Minimum weight at conclusion of run: Harley-Davidson or NHRA-accepted American push rod V-twin up to 160 cid, 615 pounds, including rider; Harley-Davidson or NHRA-accepted American push rod V-twin 161 to 200 cid, 600 pounds, including rider; Hondas and Kawasakis, 575 pounds, including rider; Suzukis, 590 pounds, including rider; all other, 600 pounds, including rider."


let me figure on this for a minute or three........

up to 160" v twin /c rider- 615 lbs.
161-200" v twin /c rider- 600lbs.
Suzuki /c rider- 590lbs.

who's running a small inch vtwin?
Suzuki's are how many CID?
what was the question?

remembered question..... cool bike, but not for me. it would have to corner for me to be allowed to buy one. and I can hear her on the wheelie bar, 'and where's my seat?'.

The Suzukis are allowed up to 87.2 CID. However NHRA is announcing major rules changes for the class .

Geeez,talk about picking something apart. I think they are cool as hell. I would not buy one,and I definently am not knocking the power of the Busa's and the like.Of course I am not talking about the big NHRA bikes,complete different bird.But on the subject of the big NHRA bikes.Like it or not.NO other bike is even close to them in the class.Regardless of the what the rules are set at. I am, for one glad to see American bikes kicking up a storm,Jump one more step up and go to the Nitro class. Still got the American bikes on top

6.968 is still the magic number.On a HD.
