Have a jockey ride it instead. 10's are great for an amateur rider, especially with 255 on the back of it.

i used to pull mid 1.40s with my 636. your weight is killing you on a 600. if you were 160lbs that would probally have been a 10.20 pass

Considering that, in no way, shape or form were the engineers considering 1/4 mi drag racing when they designed that bike, I'd say those are good times.
In the same way that any lap times done on a stretched, turbo'd Busa would be good.
Anyway, I guess my point is, I hope you're just having fun with it and not obsessing with 1/4 mi times.
At least not with a 599cc track bike.

Add Nitrous, you'll get into the low to mid 9's. w/ a 50 Shot

a 50 shot is not going to bring his times down a second or second and a half. more like 3-4 tenths.

Well he does weight more then me, and his bike is not modified like mine, but I can do low 9's pretty constant with 50-60 HP Shot of Nitrous. So I guess you are right to a point.

Lower it, stretch it, turbo it and Nos it.
Or, sell it and use the money from the sale and money from all the add-ons and mods to make it fast in the 1/4,...to buy a 14

You might really wanna consider a better weapon.

the 12r is a good bike , but the 14 is a much better weapon for the 1/4 mile. the clutch in the 14 is much better than the 12r. also more aftermarket support for the 14s. its just a better weapon.

You can get a lot of aftermarket stuff for the 12's you just have to know where to get them. Clutch can be upgraded to something better then what the 14 has, 14 is ugly, and I have saw over and over again at the drag strip 12's lay down 14's. Its really all on what mods you have and the rider. Buddy of mine I drag race with has a turbo charged & NOS 12r that I have yet to see "any" 14 beat him.

Plus 14's are like assh*les, & mustangs, everyone has one.

to each is own i guess. i will agree the 14s arent the best looking bikes, but 12s arent either. good thing i bought my 14 to make money and not put in bike shows. and yes you can upgrade the 12 stuff, but what happens when the 14 beside you has the same upgraded parts. sorry the 12 is not a player. all the 12s ive seen are lucky to break 8s. as far as your buddies 12, i feel sure theres a 14 in our camp that can get it done. with nothing but gas. i dont see many 12rs turning over a 140 mph in the 1/8 mile. as far as being like assh*les and mustangs, it must be really diffrent where you live, because around here its all busas and gixxer 1000s. but remember what you may call fast, someones else thinks thats slow, its all retaliative to where you are. im in the middle of grudge race country. carolinas have some very fast bikes, now if your buddy wants to see how fast his bike is, maybe we could set something up, just get the chip count right and remember the dolli is your freind.
