1/4 mile time

Just picked up my new 2001 ZX6r Ninja. (Leftover stock, but new).
I was just wondering if anyone new what these bike do in the 1/4 mile stock/how they keep up with other 600's. (I heard that there falling behind).
Doesn't really bother me cause it's my first sport bike/is fast enough for me.
Mainy chose this one cause it fit me best. (Hated how most of the bike have the resivoir right infront of the rmp guage).

MotorCyclist Magazine

It has current manufacturer claims as well as real HP, weight and 1/4 mile times on every bike they have road tested in the back of the magazine for every model currently sold in the USA.

As for the magazine print............All there times are corrected. Meaning, manipulated, altered and not necessarily true.

For example, the magazines claim the newer ZX6E's will make a pass of 11.3's "bone stock"........NOT! The numbers are INFLATED, PERIOD! Our rider, Joe Silva, has been dragracing since 1983, everything. He and his wife Cathy are masterful with the .400 Pro Tree. Cutting .4's and low .5 lights routinely.

On our modified '94 ZX6E (machine from '94 - '02 is UNCHANGED), a list of mods can be provided, turns 11.3's as it sits w/ time slips to prove. 1/4 mile numbers are mathematically corrected based on "mean sea level", rider weight of 150 and whatever else sounds good. Point of fact, for every 10lbs. of weight is nearly the equivalent to one-tenth (1/10) of a second. Hardly "true" numbers w/ a 460lbs machine, STOCK.

Best thing to do............Go to your local dragstrip and look for your machine and the well-known dragracer and get their "slips" or ask how fast it really is. This is reputable..............Not corrected conjecture.
