I would say top speed of around 132mph (faster if u have a tail wind) and a 1/4 mile of 13.7 - 14.0 depending on rider ability. If you trick the bike out you or change the gearing (sprockets) you may pull off a 12.9 quarter, but that would be about it.

My old 91 600R could do a 12.58 quarter, and that was with stage 3 and sprockets, so a 500R would be hard pressed to perform equally.

Why dont you take it to the local track and let us know what you do! Its a blast and always alot of fun!

Most strips won't let cars and bikes race each other. That's a VERY good rule. Don't do it. When something happens to the car, or you, it can get real ugly.
