K6 Gsxr 1000-(Questionable Trap speed?)

So i went to the track this weekend for the fist time on my 2006 Gsxr 1000. I'm still learning the bike and was not expecting any world record times. My best run was a 10.51 @ 152mph. From everything i have read i was expecting to trap in the mid to low 140s.
Im only 145lbs so i thought i might get a little bit more Mph but not to be in the 150s. Just looking for some insight on where this mph came from?.

Only thing done to the bike is a Yosh slip on, and plus two in the rear.

No way... That is crazy high.

FWIW, @oldgixxer and I took his old K5 1000 to the strip. He was running 9.6's in the 144-146 range, and his bike had a full exhaust, filter, and was mapped.

Re: K6 Gsxr 1000-(Questionable Trap speed?)

yea thats what I'm thinking . my prior run to this i trapped a 151 and i thought it might of been a error at the track, but then backed it up with the 152. i was wondering how much of a difference rider weight actually has on mph. Oh there was also a small tail wind that day.

Not that much... To trap 152 you would need a good amount more HP than a bike with just a slipon.

Maybe it's because you weigh 50lbs soaking wet??

Is the OP hiding nitrous on his bike that he did not tell us about? Of course you could pic up that much spraying

Maybe... He did say maybe the PO did headwork, so maybe he is hiding stuff.

Re: K6 Gsxr 1000-(Questionable Trap speed?)

lol The bike has no nitrous, i can barely manage the stock motor. I'm going to try get out to the track again this weekend and switch lanes. see if there is a difference. Only thing i can think of is the traps are not recorded accurately. It was at Toronto Motorsports Park in Ontario.

Re: K6 Gsxr 1000-(Questionable Trap speed?)

BTW,what gear are you crossing the traps in? I'm lazy and didnt watch the vid. And,are you lowered or stretched? I'd think +2 on the rear would be a handful. One of my K5s was a wheelie monster w +2 gearing

Re: K6 Gsxr 1000-(Questionable Trap speed?)

To gain that much MPH means three things. Either the bike has a lot more work done to it than you know, you know about the work done to it and are hiding it, or the speed traps at that track are shit.



Like I said earlier. For a lowered, strapped, swb, 165rwhp bike (which is a bike with a full exhaust, filter, and mapped), you should be running 9.60-9.90's @ 144-146.

Im crossing the line in the Top of 4th. Bike is stock height and no straps. yea 1st gear i cant go near the throttle, 2nd i roll on quickly and 3rd i go full throttle. it gets really light in third but doesnt lift.

Re: K6 Gsxr 1000-(Questionable Trap speed?)

I can not think of one GOOD excuse for that trap speed.


Even when I sucked at launching and was spinning, lifting the front and pulling 2.0 60s Id only trap mid to high 140s (Atco Raceway) so you cant even use the whole...slower 60s = higher trap speeds thought.


BTW. OG if you ever come to atco to race HIT ME UP! Im close as hell, not that good at it but love to do it and would pick your brain for advice.

EDIT: Like I said, Im now 1/4 mile guru....but with out watching the vid (I will soon). Where the hell did this run go wrong? Ive had 1.9s and still run lower 10s on the same bike.

This sounds to me liks you have a lot more work/hp than you are aware of.

We try to have the throttle locked by the 60' mark. If you are basically just rolling through 1st & 2nd, and hitting those traps, it seems like the bike is capable of a lot more.

Re: K6 Gsxr 1000-(Questionable Trap speed?)

Im really interested in this.


I watched the vid. Looks like minor spin, but from slowing the vid down you cross the line at the top of 4th at about 246kph which IS 152mph, suggesting the track is right.

How in the hell could you have that much more done to your bike and NOT know about it. If there IS that much more done to your bike why are you not making up TIME on the big end and just MPH?

OG help me out here cause now I wont be able to get this out of my head.

Remember he is +2 on the rear, and there should be some speedometer error also.

the bike does have a speedo healer on it which was set up with Gps. so it should be pretty close.
