We purchased a 2008 ZX-14 last December. It only had 1,000 miles so had really never been ridden. And never raced. So the best time we could muster this race season was 9.94 at 138 mph with a hook-up tire, airshifter, autoshift, and lowered strut on back. Removed the cat from exhaust. After reading all the stories about stock bikes going low to mid 9's, i have decided a lot of people might be lying about their machine being stock or I have the only slow one on the planet. I want to go fast!!!!! Will be adding swingarm and a 26" tall slick. Possible new frame too to stabalize this wild bucking slow horse. Am I wrong or is this what they run? Thanks. ps - bike and rider = 780 lbs. My old bike runs 9.2's and again- I really want to go FASSSTTTTT!!!
