Finally broke the ton in the 8th

It's been a long time coming.

Wednesday I rode my "new" bike to the local 8th mile strip, paid my dues and immediately made a pass.

I am admittedly old, slow and heavy (250#), but I'm happy with the 7.255@103.69 the bike generated on that 1st pass.

There is a later year FPR (fuel pressure regulator, approx 7psi more pressure) and a PCIII waiting to be installed, along with a couple of other goodies.

Too much going on, mostly all good, hope the same applies to you.

Nice bike, Steve.  A real rocket ship that got overshadowed by that other bike.

Thanks Joe -

My new favorite line -

"It's the new 500 from Honda, wanna race?"

Cool

1st mods ready for install -

Also have a footpeg lower kit somewhere, waiting for the PAIR removal plates and considering some GenMar risers.

When I took the FJ1200 out the other day, it felt like I was riding a bike with ape hangers  Grin

After install, we'll see if they made any difference via further dragstrip tests.

The benchmark is set, similar mods on my 919 netted 2-3 MPH in the 8th.
