that's wierd b/c I've raced a R6 ( it was the limited Red/Black flame type) and I'm pretty sure it was an 03' with my 03' Alstare. I took him pretty good, and man do those things sound like a bitch stock. They are so quiet, almost thought a scooter was pulling up behind me @ first. BTW, both bikes were stock with no aftermarket exhaust and my gixxer was much louder.... :2hard

oh i dont doubt that. ive only been riding for like a month and hes been riding for like 2 months. ive ridden other things (4wheelers and dirtbikes). i know its probably me too. but i was just wondering cause mine kinda bogs down when i take off from any bottom 4 gears. i just thought that is was kinda weird after hearing everything on here.

Where is your fuel at? You need to add more fuel (just throwing it out there)
Full exhaust -1 and k&n ? try taking that filter out put the stocker back you will like your self

I am sorry I meant that you need a form of adding more fuel to your bike and you would need a power commander or some type of engine management system to do this. Have you went to wwww.dynojet.com and read about it?

Sometimes I think it's the rider more than we'd like to admit...

I went to the drag strip last week with a few freinds.. A freind of mine has an 04 Legacy Turbo with a few minor mods... His best time that night was a 15.3. He and I let another freind drive both our cars and he beat my best of the night by a tenth and matched the Legacy's time. First time he had ever driven either car or a turbo AWD for that matter...

I hate to admit it but I'm not as good at the drag stip as he is or as good as I would like to claim to be... I think I'll stick to the twisties where I know I am more capable...

I think there is just something wrong with you.

Drag racing is part of road racing. If you can't get off the grid quick then you will have a lot more work to do during the race.

Down in the front, Up in the rear = more bottom end.

Up in the front, Down in the rear = more top end.
