I have to say that I expected more out of the S1000RR.... If people are hitting 150-155 mph in the quarter stock, I find it difficult to believe it only gets another 20 ish mph in another 3/4 of a mile.....

Thanks for posting the video though...

Well bone stock I hit 149 with a tail wind, 147 with slight head wind. And he does hit 172 by 1/2 mile, so it does gain another 20-25 in just another 1/4 mile. But then in the last 1/2 mile it gains only 14. It does seem low when you think about it but wind resistance is high at that speed I assume. And alot dont even hit a true 186 stock. This is real speed not speedometer speed. I was hoping for some more because it does only pick up 14 on second half, but I guess wind resistance really is a big key. As a side note, the girl hit 190 on same bike correct?

you guys have to realise that aero is HUUUUUUGE at those speeds, and our bikes are NOT the most aerodynamic.

my half mile was actually 175. Tiffany ended up squeezing 190 mph out of it that same day after i left. im sure if i had another run or 2 i could have done the same. with an exhaust/power commander and a 40 rear sprocket she will hit 200 actual speed no problem.

I thought it might be that you are so used to racing 1/4 miles that you let off the gas 3/4 of a mile early...

Cheers and good run...

There are 2 reasons, like mentioned aero is huge at speed, but the other is time. You can't think of the mile as a distance but rather as a time of acceleration. e.g. If you trap at 150 mph in the 1/4 mile and have any acceleration what-so-ever, you have less than 15 secs before you run out of the mile. When you are pulling the last 1/2 of the mile (9 seconds worth) in 5th and 6th you don't increase your speed all that much.

Also, Aero is such that an inexperenced Land Speed Racer (lets say less than 5 years worth of experience), can easily srub off 10 mph by an improper tuck or even 5 mph by having only one boot out in the wind. In addition, body size and shape makes a whole bunch of difference. I've seen bikes run in the 180 mph range all day and with a switch to an experience very small rider, run in the high 190 mph range.

Did Tiffany loan the bike for the run?
I know her and the bike. It's not stock, although really close. 520 kit with one tooth down on the rear.
