Question cb750f v. seca 2???

ok guys I wasn't sure where to post this. its one of those who would beat who type treads

my bike: 1984 cb750f supersport, pod filters, kerker 4-1 exhaust

his bike: 1991(I think) seca 2 600 stock except for a lower fairing

ok whos the big dawg here, which is better in the quarter mile, and on the twisty track and which is a better street fighter?

I suspect my bike will be faster on the drag trip, but his being it has a newer suspension will be faster on the track.

my guess would be that the cb would probably win the 1/4 mile contest. i just seem to remember the seca 2 being really slow.

the seca 2 would beat the 750 in the twisties, but not because of suspension (the seca 2 doesn't have much suspension either). seca 2 has the advantage of 17" wheels and better rubber, lighter weight, and WAY better brakes (given equal riders on the track and balls on the street). i think that's where the seca has you beat.

now if you were comparing it to the seca (the original), the cb would beat it stupid.

I figured, that much, but my bike does have about 20hp over that one, and I know the original seca would be crushed by my bike, but most were back then. how much better are the brakes, cause I was actaully impressed my bike came with dual disks up front and one out back.

Code:
Model    Tested by           HP  Weight  1/4-mile ET
Seca II  Cycle World (4/94)  48  450     13.1
CB750F   Cycle (12/80)       70  550     12.6
On a twisty road, the faster one is always the one with the better rider.

i forgot that the newer cb750's had dual disks. the brakes may not be that different.

like dan said though, the faster guy in the twisties is always the faster guy.

what about the turbo seca?? I rode one of those things once. Really slow untill the turbo spooled up, then it was like hitting the power band on a 2-stroke. Kidda neat.
