SV 60 foot times
1.8 60-foot times for a non-wheelie bar, non-slick SV 650 isn't bad at all. They could be just a bit lower, but I don't see how you would EVER get a stock SV into the 1.5's without drag-specific mods. (lowering, slick, bars, etc)
By the way, an 11.90 ET isn't bad either! That's the same best corrected time I've seen in the magazines.
Getting killed at the end of the strip? Well of course! Let's be realistic, you're comparing your SV 650 to a ZX-10R, a bike with more than double the horsepower! One that's been modded a bit for drag use as well. If you stick with making apples to apples comparisons by watching the results of other riders with SV's or with bikes of similar power/weight ratios you'll probably be much more pleased with yourself.
