Hey guys, can anyone post a site that gives gears 1-6 redline speeds? IOW's:

1st xMPH
2nd xMPH
3rd xMPH


I've seen them before, but I had no luck finding one for a 2003 Gixxer 1000. Please help - thanks.

Ya, but does anyone have the numbers? Deal is, I'm an old school gixxer guy, owned 4 86-93's, 750's and 1100's, then my buddy bought an 03 1000 and we had a debate about 1st gear redline speed. Anyway, I took it out and checked 1st gear redline speed, so w/o putting any bias into the numbers, what will an 03 Gixxer 1000 do in 1st gear @ redline? Personal testimonials are cool, and please post, but a site with references would be great too.

Thanks guys

So that's for the 2005, but the 2003 is some 15 HP less, which means the gearing is probably shorter, whether inside the tranny or at the tcrank/wheel or all 3, so that probably wouldn't be an exact comparison to the 2003.

Thanks for the response.
