I'm going to build a grudge bike (nitrous bike) and found a good deal on a k8 gixxer. U was going to buy a busa or zx 14 but have a chance to get this gixxer for a good price. Will I be at at huge dissadvantage using a gixxer compared to a busa or zx 14? Or should I say am I wasting money buying the gixxer and just get the busa or zx 14? Can the gixxer run with the bigger bikes?

At HubCity Dragway a few weeks ago, I continuously witnessed the smack downs 1000's handed out to Busas. Amazing! To answer your question, you should be able to compete with the larger bikes because the smaller bikes have a weight advantage. You might want to do some research.

A 1k will definitely run with the best of them. I'd consult with a builder before spending that kind of money to be sure you get the right answer for what your tryin to do. Casings seem to get weaker the newer the 1k but total weight is also lighter

WHAT WEIGHT IS THE RIDER? 180 AND UNDER I'D SAY 1000, ANYTHING OVER THAT I'D GO WITH A BUSA.

I can def verify that. My buddy runs a k7 1000 stretched 6" over and he runs over some of the busas. Rider ability plays a massive role when your talking about putting all the power these bikes make on the ground and being able to control it.

For the money go with a busa. Can go fast really cheap. 1k's are fast but the money you put in them to get that fast you can put in a busa and go faster.

How big of an advantage are the "straight cut gears" that true factory race bikes come stock with? By design they should out last the stock 1300 transmission but should it be a big concern for any busa owner that races?

a busa will hold up better but i would not say u would be faster with a busa over a 1000 trust me on this a busa is a strong power plant bust nitrous will tear anything up if you lean on it hard it all depends on ur setup n weight if ur a light weight build a 1000 or let me build u one of the fastest grudge bikes on the planet:2thumbs:
