    From zx14 to a blackbird.

    there is a guy on a local bikers forum that got an '03 blackbird for a loaner untill the clutch in his zx14 is fixed. he thinks that a newer 600 will beat a blackbird on the strip. i think he's out to lunch.

    Yes, a new 600 will beat a blackbird on the strip... Blown or on Nitrous. Could be he's riding a sick bird in need of some attention.

    As I have never been on a strip with mine, I couldn't speak to that, but I do have some doubts as the bird has a gob more torque. I can say that at any rolling speed the 600 is toast, and that is from experience.

    Re: From zx14 to a blackbird.

    Well there are some fast 600s out there these days. I don't recall reading about one that would beat an XX in the 1/4mile but I can't say I read every test on 600's as they don't do it for me. Really if I was interested in a 600 it would be to take it out and thrash it on a road track.

    Re: From zx14 to a blackbird.

    Depends on the riders.A good rider on a fast 600 can beat an average joe on a Blackbird.Been to the track enough times to know.
    However,put the same guy on both bikes,the Blackbird will win EVERY FREAKIN TIME!
    End of story.

    I think motorcyclist ran a 10.2 on the bird. Haven't seen a stock 600 or 750 put down anything that fast.

    Re: From zx14 to a blackbird.

    I usually go to the drags a few times a year, the best I could was a 10.9 on my bird. My nieghbour ran an 11.2 on a 2008 CBR 600, it seems like they are getting closer guys.
