For a first post, that is certainly interesting... Are you sure you picked the right forum?

OKay here's the deal.

A NON stock wheelbase S1000RR has done in the 8.4 range (brocks performance). The stock wheelbase bike *just* cracked into the 8s.

This Brock's Performance bike is shattering AMA records with an 8.49-second, 158.46mph quarter mile.



here's the release on the stock wheelbase bike

Quote:
Ongoing research and development has pushed the Brock's Performance SuperSport-prepped, stock-wheelbase BMW S 1000 RR into the coveted 8-second E.T. bracket.

During the recent "No Hatin'" race series at Kil-Kare Raceway in Xenia, Ohio, the bike recorded a scorching 8.95 run with Jeremy Teasley in the saddle.

Stressing that it's "business as usual" at Brock's Performance while the AMA Dragbike series undergoes restructuring, shop owner Brock Davidson vowed not to let turbulent times deter him from developing products and testing them in the sport's most competitive regional venues.

For Kil-Kare, the BMW was run in AMA Dragbike SuperSport trim. SuperSport rules are the most stringent in motorcycle drag racing. The only allowable deviations from stock are lowered suspension, modified gearing, aftermarket exhaust, a fuel-injection controller, ceramic wheel bearings and very few other changes.

"We're working hard to improve the BMW's performance," said Davidson. "To do any kind of systematic testing you must have a standard to run against. The SuperSport rule structure is still the way stock-wheelbase performance is gauged."

To extract every bit of acceleration from the bike, Brock's enlisted the services of local drag ace Jeremy Teasley to lay down clean runs on the short, low, lean, 200-horsepower machine. With two AMA Dragbike Real Street championships under his belt, Teasley is widely regarded as one of the best sportbike drag racers in the business.

Running off an 8.90 national record set by Rickey Gadson on a Brock's-prepared ZX-14 last season, Teasley clicked off successive quarter-mile runs of 9.12 and 9.04 seconds before hitting a 8.971 at 157.93 mph.

He went on to lower the mark with an astounding 8.950. Teasley's best 1/8-mile time of 5.83 seconds was just over one-hundredth of a second off Gadson's national record. All this, at a track that was not prepared to national-event standards, with an adjusted air density altitude of 3800 feet.

"With the S 1000 RR having a better power-to-weight ratio of any production sportbike, we felt strongly that we were going to do some damage in the SuperSport class with the BMW this season and it is very disappointing that AMA Dragbike suspended operations after we got only two races in," said Davidson.

"Nonetheless, we're going to continue doing what we do best: developing, testing and selling products that make streetbikes fly. I still hold out hope that there will be another national-level SuperSport class in the somewhat near future. When that happens, we'll show up with a finely tuned, powerful weapon, ready to do battle."

so yeah, faster than the ZX10

I don't understand why people who don't own an S1000RR come to this forum and bash our bike. I don't go over to other forums and talk smack about their bikes. They have to know they will be hammered for coming to our forum and bashing our bike which they DON'T own.

I guess maybe I'm missing something.

Actually, being a member of pretty much all the forums, it happens everywhere, however, always more prevalent when a new bike comes out, to try and take out the king. Being top dawg will always mean you're a target. Just one vicious circle after another.

Same reason I and probably a lot of you have raked on the hottest girl in the bar who's there with some other guy: jealosy because we're not riding it! Envy is such an ugly shade of green
