    According to bike magazines here in the UK they are saying that other than top speed the new gixer 1000 is a faster bike on roll ons 1/4 mile etc...

    Any comments from you all ?

    I have both an 02 busa and 03 gixxer, could be true with stock bikes? I rolled on with salsa and got him twice, later he discovered his compression was around 90 lbs.... I have rolled on with modded twelves and pulled on them but only to like 160 or so. not many "stock" busas show up around here with experienced riders on them, so its hard to test the theory. perhaps gixxer pete, AKA "heyabuza" has completed the test?
    I could roll on with him but my busas not stock.....

    You can't always believe what ya read. I doubt a 1000 will out pull a Busa in a 3rd-4th gear roll on.

    In a 6th gear role-on I would say "YES" but 1/4 mile *BS*! (This is due to several reasons but mainly gearing, weight and the G1K power!)

    It will be pretty hard for them to keep the front end of the G1k on the ground in the 1/4 but either way it's a very close race and will come down to the more skilled rider!

    Don't believe everything you read in UK bike mags, there 1/4 times are a little..........IFFY! [​IMG] A while back they posted a stock BUSA running a 10.8 in the 1/4 and an 11? something in another test!

    How many plug wires did they pull off of it?!?!? [​IMG]

    Either way the BUSA is the best ALL around bike (touring, back roads, any straight away, 1/4 mile, TOP SPEED, etc.)! [​IMG]

    tinman, there is no question the busa will womp it after 160-65 or so, like I said, I rolled on with salsas busa, both of us in 2nd gear and I pulled on him twice to about 160 then we shut down. he had low compression and wieghs about 220. my gixxer has pulled on 12s to about a registered 165? another twelve I deadlocked with? I feel the two bone stock are pretty deadlocked rolled on in 2nd from around 65-70, the gixxer will prolly get a slight jump cuz of the weight advantage and possibly hold it till around 150? there is no doubt in my mind after that the bus will reel in the gix with a nice salute. I beleive 1/4 mile times are real close...

    Here is what I've noticed. Stock Vs Stock with equal riders, the 1000 will beat a busa in the 1/4 mile

    If you optimize the gearing, the busa will win in the 1/4 mile. The busa has more torque and more HP, and more weight to keep the front end down.

    top end? the busa will win

    The 1000 is a sick bike, and yes, in many instances, will take a busa to about 160mph

    How does the magazine define fastest??? And what were the parameters for the test? I ask because since there have been no major changes in our Beloved Busa in some years they it would seem more profitable to report on the lastest if not greatest bike -- ..all this to say its been a while since i've seen Suzuki buy advertising space for the hayabusa [​IMG]
