Re: what\'s faster \'98 750 or 89 7/11? (straightline)
I drive a 750SRAD & I love her, but brother an 1100!? Do you remember the fear in which for a decade and counting that motor instills/ed!? Technology has given 750's nowadays nearly as much HP as the liter bikes of years past, but still... Number one it appears that RONNIE is better at the strip, and his 1100's less peaky power-band has at the drag an inherent advantage. He's making more hp & torque all through the rev range while the 750's power delivery is peakier & allows a smaller margin for error. And dude a 40mph roll-on, don't even try RESONANT! Ronnie is going to walk you. Second gear, side-by-side, it's all over man! I don't know about these 1.8 & 2.0 shorts though? The "95 Mustang GTS I sold to buy my gixxer has run consistently over the 6 years I owned her 13.9 1/4's w/1.9 shorts at my local track, Moroso Motorsports Park. On your bike, I'm sure you can get your shorts down to a solid 1.6 which effectively could drop your et's almost a half second. I hope these bikes haven't been relegated to the straight & narrow though!
These bikes are designed for the twisties, you know! This is gotta be just for bragging rights, correct?
