Well my second trip to Loring didnt go as well as I would have liked. I had good weather and a small cross wind at about 3 mph. My last run I nailed all my shifts and went through 1.5 over 11000 rpm. I was so happy I thought I had my 200 mph pass. Got my slip and a 190.74. WTF. Scott went 202.4 with 20-50 oil in it and all I did is put my go to race oil in it. 530rr. Me at my weight;300 in gear the clutch was slipping on the big end. The sad part is I have the Brocks clutch kit but was told it was'nt needed unless I was drag racing. Wrong. I am happy I lost 16lbs from spring to fall. I am going for 250lbs in gear for the spring event and my ride on the Redsled. Scotts bike as most of you know was a monster.
Redsled.

Redsled.
The world knows the 14R motor is a beast compared to most anything else. Kinda gives a moment of pause to think about what the 12R done 15 years ago and what bikes like Scott's are doing today with extremely basic turbo systems.. With the exception of the transmissions giving up from extreme power the motors appear to be bulletproof as well making power between 450 and 600 Hp !!

It's the basic part of what Scott is doing that has impressed the hell out of me. No 10K Motec ECU, No 1K NLR Boost controller, STOCK WHEELS !, No extreme body panel alterations other than a loner tail to smooth the flow off the tail. I would love to see the bike with a tank cover on there to give it an even more stock look. That would be too awesome indeed.

There's only a handful of us truly loyal 12R believers left that have always felt the 12R was and still is Kawasaki's brightest moment. The 14 and 14R are spin offs from the original 12R concept adding to it's legacy of being decades ahead of everything else. Sometimes all it takes is for one moment in time to go down different than it actually went down to change history. In the case of the 12R and the Busa that's exactly one of those moments. But I for one am glad it went the way it went. 12R's are today rare and getting more so with each passing day. Glad I started collecting up parts several years back. Mine will never be sold.

Im working out a deal on another 2000 a1. I hope it goes through. I cant wait to ride the Redsled again. The 14r is my street bike and im not going to lower it or run it on race fuel. For now anyways. I do miss having a 12r street bike so Im gonna fix that. And over the winter Ill try to finish my kz1000 project. Now that bike with a little power is way more fun than it should be. Redsled.
