GSX-R 1000 vs Hayabusa results
Well I had the pleasure of getting to race my buddies GSX-R 1000 vers a local Hayabusa. The Busa was modified with a full exhaust, power commander, and 3 teeth down in the front. The gixxer was bone stock.
We did it from a roll at about 25mph. The first race I jumped on him in the gixxer and held a 2 bike lead till we hit 3rd and he started to pull on me. When I went to fourth he pulled about 2 bike lenghts ahead. I missed the 3rd-4th shift so this may have had something to do with it. But I was very surprised this modded busa didn't pull harder. The second race was a little more even and he pulled slightly and won by about the same amount. He stopped racing when he hit the redline in 6th, and the gixxer was only at the top of 5th, at an indicated 185, so since he was down in gearing he deffinitly lost top end.
All in all it was a great race, and I had a blast. The fastest I've ever been on a bike, or anything for that mattter. If your wondering why I was racing my freinds bike, its cause me and the busa driver were the same weight and size. My buddie is about 50#s heavier, and he lost by alot more because of that.
And before I get any remarks about safety and the such. This was out in the middle of no where on the edge of town, a brand new road that is used for garbage trucks ( so no traffic on sunday morning). We were out there at about 8am. Both of us had on leathers, boots, helmet, and many people to watch for cars. So it was safe as possible.
