    TOE has tuned his riding pants and seat with Velcro so his ass won't come out of the saddle as he rips into a high rate of fuel consumption.....

    On my long list of things to do. After spending money on this bike like a drunken sailor and goofing off for several months it is not on the top of the list of thing to accomplish. But I will get it done.

    Dyno is not the question. But it may be the answer.

    This is what I have been waiting to see. Don't get me wrong I love all the info and any video of this monster is good. The the drive by videos are good start, But I want to see it "launched", hard By someone who knows how to do it. Not a let the lever out and roll the gas on, I mean front end "strapped", hold the throttle on the pin and abuse the clutch, skate the front tire, all out drag race pass for ET.

    Just saying.....

    TC would probably let you do it as long as you let him hold a wad of bucks say around 15k just in case you don't know how to do it.

    Well I don't know how you ride yours, but my 5th gen can smoke any 600 I've come up against, at least in a drag race ! The figures below were taken from MCN's review pages. The newer 600's are a bit quicker on acceleration, but only in the hands of a good rider as you have to rev the nuts off them & they run really high compression ratios to get their torgue up from an averge 45ft/lb to low 50'sft/lb which combined with their lighter weight gives them slightly better acceleration. I deliberately picked the models prior to the current 600's to show a real world comparison, the ones before these were actually better bikes, as in more trackable. These & the newer ones, would need to drop 3 gears for good over taking acceleration.

    Bike 1/4mile-Top Speed
    VFR750 4th Gen 11.6 152
    VFR800 5th Gen 11.3 155 (torque aprox 54ft/lb)
    VFR800 6th Gen 12.0 155
    CBR600F4i 11.5 155
    CBr600RR 11.1 165 (07-08 model)
    Yam R6 11.1 165 (06-07 model)
    GSXR600 11.15 164 (04-05 model)
    Kawa ZX-6R 11.22 164 (07-08 model)

    My light weight 5th Gen (185Kg dry/210 wet) will do better than the advertised 5th gen figure & when I wring some more power from it, it will be faster than the 600's too :wink: The MK1 Ram Air system already makes it quicker at high speed, the MK2 will be better still :cool:

    A few years ago I would have taken him up on that offer. In the early 2000's I was at a drag strip with one of my bikes at least once a week, sometimes twice. Heartland Park Topeka is just down the street form me and KCIR was only an hour away. Now however I am to Heavy (I got fat and happy) and to out of practice to do it justice.

    And before I am asked no I was not drag racing VFRs back then I had a stretched and slammed 1340cc 88 GSX-R with 120 shot of Nitrous on a controller. As well as a 01 Turbo Busa, also stretched and slammed that made 330RWHP. Not much by today's standards I know but the GSX-R ran low 9's and the Busa ran mid 8's. I did have a VFR as a "street bike" back then and I did take it to the track once (the other 2 were broken, bent valve and a blown head gasket) and it did run considerably faster than the previously stated times but I knocked the clutch out of it doing so..

    With that experience you might be able to negotiate the 15k to a few bucks less..;) Still like they say, a DNF is a DNF..

    Finished reading this thread. What a great project and resulting bike. With that kit, you could take a used bike and make it perform better than a brand new bike for half the cost. I live in Napa, so maybe someday I can take a look at the beast in person.:senor:

    As to the finger ..... damn. What a shitty deal. To do all that work and get jacked up like that. I was a diesel mechanic in the Marine Corps and I swear that my small power tools make me more nervous than anything I worked on in the Corps. Hope the finger heals up nicely.
