im not sure what your not understanding but i dont really need you to explain anything to me. ive been modding my cars and bike for over ten years now. i think i got the hang of it. im very aware of what a before and after dyno tune is.

honestly i dont mean to offend you, but please read the entire thread before posting. everything you have asked is already in my posts. i do appriciate your interest in my thread. but please try and read everything before posting, it makes it easier for people to follow if information isnt being revisited imho.

like i said, sorry if i offended you. i wasnt trying to. i just dont know what else to say.
smh these darn interent egos.. explain 2 to u! i was just trying to understand the information you posted don't worry about it though goodluck n god speed..

I apologize again. If there is something you don't understand then ask it again I will try a little harder to understand and help you out. I just got a little frustrated at your last couple posts. They seemed to me to all be asking the same question.

Third coast did one dyno run on my bike after the arm was installed. It pulled 186hp. There was no tune or hp changes at all. Once I do decide on a corse of action as to how to add the power( leaning real hard towards a turbo kit) then I will take it back to mike and allow him to tune it again. I will post the results here when it's finished over the winter. Whether or not I do actually turbo.

Mike is an amazing builder/tuner. I have 100% trust in him. He will be the only one besides my self turning a wrench in my bike.

I hope this helps

He's the man. Mike is one of the best I've come across. He's a genius when it comes to any bikes really. I can't wait to see his face when he tunes both of those. He was shocked at what mine put down.

Feel free to post here on what they make so ill know around about what to expect!

well, guys...


i had a few personal things come up and im sad to say that i will not be able to get a turbo kit for my bike this year and im a little bummed about it.

but, i did manage to squeeze out the cash for an AR pipe and bazzaz with qs.

i havent even had a chance to install my clutch mod much less get any ridding in. im hoping with all the vacation time i have coming up at the end of this yr i will be able to get some of this stuff on and go for a little ride.

after all, ive never seen a motorcycle parked in front of a therapists office right? lol

i will post pics here of my install and maybe a couple sound clips, all tho there is several great ones on here and youtube of the great work Rich does.

i am excited about next season still but it just seems so far away...

Just came across this thread.
I've dragged bikes before but never stretched/lowered.
Mostly my 01 FZ1. I found that (just like you) launching about 9000 and slipping the clutch til you can get it all the way out is the best start you can get. Best of 10.6/131 (stock)
I haven't dragged My S1000 but am very interested in seeing your progress.
Thanks for posting!

Not being a hater whatsoever, but something is not jiving with your dyno numbers and your trap speed. Even with 1.6 60’ times (which is pretty darn good), your trap should be about 7-8 mph faster showing those HP numbers. I tune a lot of 1000cc bikes for the track and yes, it takes work to get a gsxr up to the HP levels of a stock S1Krr. But, a 180 wHP gsxr setup like your S1Krr will trap in the low 150s with a 150 lb rider. The shop bike, a ’06 gsxr with only pistons, degree’d stock cams, and sidewinder runs 9.0s all day with a best of 9.00@154.5 it makes 184 wHP on VP MR12. Now the answer could be gearing, it’s geared low. The rider is in 6th gear near the rev limiter as she crosses the traps. If we can get her 60’ down, it’s in the low 1.5s now, we maybe able to pull off some 8.9s.

i agree with you. my best time is a 1.5 60' but my trap speed was only 148 on that run. altho i think i have found the problem, maybe...

i was looking at a phone video of a couple of my lic passes and it seems that the bike sag is set so soft that i am DRAGGING my cat through first gear. there was also a few times where when i shifted that the cat then hit the groung and actually made sparks that can been seen when i up shift and the bikes suspension flexes.

i am 190-195 with gear so i think that may have some stuff to do with it being a little low on trap speeds. but there isnt anything i can really do about that lol.

and being as i am only a small amt off of the 150 mph trap speeds i didnt think that i was too far off of what i stock bike set up like mine will do. im hoping that the problem i stated earlier is the actual problem.

only time will tell. the tracks are closed now and when i go back ill have a pipe and tune with qs installed on the bike.

thanks for taking the time to read the thread. i appriciate the interest.

You do want the rear shock to be somewhat soft to transfer the weight, but maybe not that soft.

More I think about this, I bet you could really scoot if you drop the gearing even more. Come to think of it, early in this season the shop gsxr was bogging bad coming out of hole until we dropped another tooth up front. The launch RPM also dropped 1k or so and it became much more consistent.
