Hayabusa vs ZX-14

From another board for those who might be interested.......

Straight from Rickey Gladson

During a top secret test in Phoenix Arizona, with whether conditions, a beautiful 80 degrees with an adjusted altitude of 1800 ft.........a 2006 Hayabusa and a 2006 Kawasaki ZX14 were run head to head, both with 800 miles on them, both with stock gearing,stock pipes, stock height, stock tires(same air pressure),stock settings on chassis,same gas out of same jug(pump), and same rider(me)
alternating between both bikes after 4 runs a piece.

After 4 runs on the Hayabusa, a baseline ET of 9.92@ 141.55 (STOCK HEIGHT)

4 runs on the ZX14 netted a baseline of 9.77 at 145.89

after 6 sets of 4 runs a piece ,the best numbers looked like this
Hayabusa............. ZX
1.66.................... 1.66
4.31.................... 4.34
6.34.................... 6.27
114.44 mph.......... 117.10 mph

9.901 @ 142.00 9.755 @ 146.20 STOCK HEIGHT!!!!!!!

Without being biased, if anyone ever gets a chance to ride the 2 bikes, one behind the other, you too will be amazed at how much of a difference you feel in acceleration.




The 06 Busa is still a respectable and capable motorcycle!

From Rickey...

As promised..........................here are the official numbers and info everyone around the country is waiting for.

I am doing this as a public service so lets not let this get out of hand with the non-believers.

These are real production motorcycles and the performances are real, and realistic, and can be duplicated with any off the shelf ZX14, cause we have tested more than one with same results.
I hope no one has built up there expectations so high that the real numbers are un-impressive.........................but here it is.

2006 Kawasaki ZX14
mods-------slammed
no air filter
THATS IT!!!!

Stock pipes
stock gearing
87 octane pump gas
stock tires
ABSOLUTELY NO TRICKS

60ft ............... 1.56
330ft ............. 4.04
660ft ..............6.08 @ 120.90
1000ft ............7.85

1320ft 9.36 @ 147.71

remember this was acheived with stock gearing, most notable was 47 runs in one day with same clutch.
At one point we made 12 back to back runs, clutch is UNBELIEVABLE!!! STOCK GEARING!!!!!!!!

Torque is unbeleivable, and allows you to leave under 4000 RPM and still have to fight the front wheel.



I think even more impressive than that is the results me and Coby got with a 6 inch over arm (64 inches).

MODS

64 inches
Pirelli
Air shifter
MR9
SLIP ON MUZZYS CANISTER
no Air filter
1 tooth smaller counter shaft(16)

1.36 1.37
3.66 3.68
5.59 @ 126.55 5.62 @125.73
7.28 7.32

8.73 @ 154.55 8.78 @ 153.54

I read an article that said that was why it was faster than the ZX-12 topend, it had a smaller frontal area=more streamlined......it seemed to make sense. They had graphs and all that as to why even with more HP the ZX-12 was slower. I forget where I read it, one of the mag's though.

Can't wait to see what they are going to do to the Busa next. What if they find a way to make the Busa lighter, with more power? For years everyone has been trying to out do the Busa, but no succesors yet.

kawasaki has really stepped it up with the clutch on almost all of the bikes the past few years. i hear alot about how great the clutch engages at higher RPMS and good things about the factory slipper clutch on the SS bikes.

as a kawi owner and somebody with a "alliance" with kawasaki, i would still ride the busa over the zx14, just based on looks.

I don't like the looks of the ZX-14 that much, but it was built that way for aerodynamics. Not sure why they put a single seat on the bike though. I doubt that has anything to do with aero's. The Busa had better aero's than the ZX-12R, but the ZX-12R had more power. I am not sure why everyone says the busa is king, when the ZX-12R is a match for it on the street. The ZX-14 will top the current busa, no question. There is a new busa in the works that will be released as an early model '07. Suzuki is waiting for the ZX-14 to be released so they can get one and try to make the busa better.

I think it's still the only one that out of the box would go over 190, the early ones that is. I'm pretty sure that even the 05 Gixxer 1k, though quicker 1/4 mile, is all done at 180.......from what I've seen anyway.

In the U.S. magazine tests, the '99 Busa is the only bike that went over 190 mph. The 2000 Busa and ZX-12R could not match that. One of the European mags tested a 2000 ZX-12R that went over 190 mph stock. The Busa and ZX-12R are pretty much even, with the Busa having more power on the bottom and midrange and the ZX-12R having the advantage up top.
