Mine won't, it feels like it is right on the edge of coming up but hasn't yet. I do lean pretty far forward though.

We both weigh in around 170 give or take a few pounds.

I don't know.

Valentino Rossi is not going to beat me in a 40 mph roll if he's on a 600 and I'm on a Busa.

Talent goes a long way, but to discount the machine as making up only 5% of the equation doesn't sound right.

If he's on a 600RR and you're on a 636, I'll place my bets on him.

I think I will spend a little more time practicing my launch before hitting up the track. I won't tell him about practicing though

Next time, line up on his right side, and just before you go reach over and flick off his kill switch....

I know I'm bringing this thread back from the dead but we ran again Saturday night on the way back from the bike rally from about a 35-40mph roll and I put about two bike lengths on him and held it until about 115-120 or so.

When we got home he said "man we came up on that car quick" and I thought to myself "yea, I got too it about two lengths before you"

I have to say, the bike sure runs great with this cold air.

I would think his bike would be quicker as well. Could something be wrong with it?

Just the difference in technology amongst years has improved greatly between the bikes, but driver's efficiency is the greatest factor debatable here.

Two of our friends were playing after rally back in my area of the woodlands... 05 600rr and a 1500cc harley. They ran the same from what I can tell in the rear view mirrors

he's got more experience and more weight to not wheelie the bike and plant the rear but in all honesty my 01 600 Katana smokes him all day, and it's underpowered,overweighted and carburated. If she want's to stop light drag him she needs to practice her launches and acceleration...

As for the mods; in that slow-speed drag race, ram air and slip on does little if anything compared to the gearing change... Assuming he went the right direction and not for top speed...

10-15 lbs difference in rider weight will make that much difference.
