I do hope you can go quicker than that, JB. From memory I think our man, Littlebutquick, clocked either 9.2 or 9.6 seconds on his 1125R
Mind you, he weighs nothing, has a lot of experience and had invested heavily in making his bike very quick.
He's not been here in a long time and I can't even find him in the member list.
Yeah, first time for me.
Eleven point anything seems a million miles away, but I could definitely go faster with Cr Gearing & some Velocity Stacks (Stacks I've now found). They'll bring the power band into a much more preferable range & when I find Cr gearing (not easy, I've been looking since I had my first ride on this) it will allow me to use the power a lot better.
It's far to highly geared as standard to accelerate like it can. Christ, this thing doesn't start really moving or lifting the wheel till I'm in 4th gear & I only made 3rd at Santa Pod.
I've done mine for the road & smooth running through towns, luckily, neither of the things I've mentioned will degrade that smooth running, the power will just be more in my face.
That will be it for me, as that alone will be more than I can really afford to spend on my 1125r & would be better off starting with something faster if I was going to pursue 10.11.12's
I'm still not trying to make my 1125r go faster, just much quicker off the mark & through the gears.
Most of the guys down at Santa Pod were on bikes they brought in vans with Air shifters that cost as much as my bike.
I'm not going there, that's for sure, but would like another go with the mods I mentioned.
Maybe next year eh?
All the best & thanks for your interest. Paul.
