What you think it can do a quarter mile in I need it for my kPPI calculations.

Do you have a guess? I am figuring 10-10.5 secondss

I am going to guess 10.8 seconds

I'll give it a break.. figure it about as fast as a 600.

Ok I assumed 10.43 seconds in the Quarter mile and calculated a kPPI of 88.51 for more kPPIs click user info.

Re: O yes Buell's first big win...

which is really close to a stock XB-12 kPPI.. What does this say? In order to get to the level to compete with the R6s and ZX-6Rs of the world...you have to spend 20,000 dollars more to get a Buel that can get quarter mile times down to ZX-6R times... 11.38 seconds is how fast a stock XB can do...This why the kPPI stayed almost the same..

You make a great point. oil changes are sure cheaper than valve inspections...
