The utilitarian one.

2003
Kawasaki
Z1000
Custom Gloss Black/Pearl Black Racing Stripes.

Mods:
ZX-6 forks with Race tech gold valves, Emulators, 1.0 Race Springs-Front forks lowered 12mm.
Radial brake upgrade with fork conversion.
ZX-6 rear shock Race tech revalve, Z 1000 stock spring.
Adjustable tie rods-Raised 25mm for increased ride hight, front end feel, front end weight bias and lessen rake and trail dynamics.
Hel stainless brake lines.
HH sintered pads.
520 chain conversion with Votex sprockets.
Michelin Pilot Power 2CT's.
No steering damper-I like the way the Z's front end wiggles it's way out of a corner apex under power.

Dude, you didn't hit 178.  ;D  Maybe 150...stock.

It had 124 Horses @ 10,500 rpm / Euro's unrestricted models top off at 164... US models - not close at all.

So where and when did you hit the 178?  Speedo healer on that after you "upgrade" the sprockets?  C'mon dude...

Do you have one now?  Let's hook up next season.  

(drum roll please...)

Ta-da!  Backroads of western WI!  More Frosted Flakes, please!



No disrespect, but I don't think that 900RR won't even come close to  breaking the 180 mark at Brainerd's notorious Turn 1.  

 :)

178mph is where I got it up to.  & as you said stock is 150mph so whats hard to believe about a jetted, piped & sprocket changed bike.  Stock 900RRs came with a 16in front wheel mine was also switched for a 17in.  & no this wasn't done on a limited roadway like Brainard.  Try 94w all the way to wisconsin.  I road a lot with Shoua, Quinn & the guys back then.  Try 11pm til 4am in the morning, anywhere from Wisconsin to Precott & back to MN.  Shoua & Quinn road a few times @ Brainard events & thats where I actually got my drag radials from is Brainard.  

I've seen gixxers(750 not 600) with a pipe on dyno do well over 180mph on dyno but thats without wind drag.  & you probably would believe this also but my buddy's 2000 kawi 600 & my S2 are neck & neck on the hwy.  Rematching this summer.  I'll vid that for you guys.  LOL...  

On a future note I'm picking one up next year.  Been dreamin about a Repsol(1000) or Duc(916-998), but saddly I have to settle for an R1.  I'd love to run out again with the pack.  I did get a chance to ride my buddy's gixxer 1000 with a wheel extension & power control & that thing hauls ASS!  Been just riding my friends bikes here & there.  Seems the wheel extension is a hot thing now, most of my friends bike have them.  Thats what I'll be doing to the R1 also.  Can't wait!

So Sin, I was just wondering about your speedo reading.

If you've "upgraded" the chain and sprockets, without that speedo healer-that Hmoob was talking about-your bike was running out of sync speeds with that larger sprocket up front. I mean, one tooth in front is equal to three more on the rear sprocket. So are you saying you were running corrected top end speeds with high speed tire growth and speedo error at readings above 100mph?

I'm sure Sin is talking about indicated speedo mph and not actual as most bikes are 5-10% higher on speedo than actual.  When I took my 99' Busa to 200 MPH indicated in the Mojave Desert, I think the actual was probably closer to 185ish MPH.

Here are the specs for the 900RR (given the mods done and how light Sin looks, I wouldn't doubt "178 mph" indicated):

Hey, maybe your and your girl should trailor your bikes out next year for the ride.  I'd like to see Sin hammer it through Trooper Alley...regard less if it was midnight, or 4 in the morning. 

If we're in the area again, I'll hit all yall up for a spin.  When we were at gas station in St. Paul, a black guy was cautioning us about "Janesville", WI because it's a troopers' speed trap haven.  Not sure how true but we did took it easy right after Madison to Janesville until we hit the WI/IL stateline.

Seems I hit a soft spot.  theking, you might be right speedo might be off do to front wheel but I don't know if that plays a part in speedo reading.  
HmoobPahAy: yes, this was done on 94 from Stillwater back to the cities.  We rode a lot at night & at that speed who cares about the troopers then, there was about 20 of us.  178mph isn't a big deal any dumb bat out of hell can get on a crotchrocket & just rip it.  I certainly don't ride at that speed all the time or would I want to.  We did ride A LOT @ 145mph to 155mph.  We ALL we careless & didn't really care a whole lot back then about cops(year 2000).  If I rode at 110mph I was WAAAAY back in the pack.

Honestly if you don't believe 178mph you don't have to.  Thats like saying an S2 only tops out at 150mph stock yet I've seen 177mph with bolt-ons & a stretch of road.  I've seen my cousin's RX7TT @ 155mph with intake & exhaust & bro-in-law's 3000gtTT @ 150mph with intake exhaust.  Even my 88MR2sc have seen 142mph.  To top it off Quinn's 996duc has gotten to 170mph+ also(we do this side by side). Where is all this going on @? You're right, its your public HWY.  

HmoobPahAy:  I don't know about any Hmong crews in MN.  When I rode a lot they didn't have crews as of yet.

What???  That's what I thought I saw.  Any really good riders, or just posers?

 ;D 8)

My guess they are just like you.  They ride motorcycles.  Define a really good rider?  Define a poser?

Kamikaze Krew?  I've just heard about them this year, unsure who is in that crew.  If thats Shoua's group the group I use to ride with Shoua is pretty damn good.  Try wheelie @ 100mph+ & shifting gears, thats crazy.  I ran him once @ rockfalls with the MR2sc & I was halfway down the track already when he passes me doing a wheelie down the track standing up & still managed a 11.7et.  hahaha it was an awesome sight to see cause I was right next to him for a split sec.

^ wow, this really turned into who is better than who.  & yes, the guy I mentioned is good, he ran track time at Brainard too & I believe he still does.  So based on what you've said stunts are posers.  Seems you tried to flame on everything I mentioned, from speed to stunts & I even mentioned track, surprised you didn't jump on that one too.  hahaha  I'm not interested in the call out.  I ride for fun not to prove that I am hot sh|t.  So if I ride what will that prove to you?  All I said was I took my CBR900RR up to 178mph, wow.
