Its close...but only because of the 400 more rpm than stock.

Be sure to take off about 3% for slip, then tire wear if any (measure your tire), and set the max rpm for about 10900.

Brock did a write up and video interview, including dyno testing:

The 201.76 14R mph ridden to work, with nothing more than a switch to pump gas...



I've owned and ridden (regularly) well over 20 bikes (maybe 30+?), but this14R is my favorite yet...

Brock's guy took some really nice pics. Bike was on and off the dyno, and just cleaned up with windex.

Its killing me that I just realized that Brocks is about 15 miles from my house :) Going to hit him up with some business right as the season starts, well maybe sooner :)

See if I can trade some IT work for parts LOL.

and it sounds like you are not much farther. Grats on the bike! it looks Stupid Fast :)

A late update....

Well, the setup and mods paid off:

First 14R over 200:

Brocks Performance: Racheal Johnson breaks 200 MPH on the 2012 ZX-14R

Fastest 14R in the world (July 2012, 212.89 mph):

Brocks Performance: 290 MPH FROM A STANDING START IN ONE MILE



I am not sure there is much more to be done with the bike at this point...other than ride it!

Promo for February Dealer Expo in Indianapolis:



The bike, sitting in Brock's booth at the Indy Dealer Expo:



Brock's article and promo video from the Expo:

Brocks Performance: Dealer Expo '13 Photo Recap and Promotional Video

A lot of interest in the bike, and Racheal signed a lot of autographs. Brock had special "Hero Cards" made, which have her pic on the bike at speed, and the bike specs and other info printed on them. I talked a lot of 14R over the weekend.

You will be very happy with Brock's products and support. We are actually over 450 miles from Brock, but he is not that far from Wilmington, where we sometimes race.

How do you get into an event like that? Something I would like to do I think, just for the hell of it, and I am right next door in Indiana. More of a 1/4 mile guy........but would not mind a legal wide open run, just because.

00 ZX12R, billet basket, PC3, Akrapovic pipe, Puig screen, Muzzy damper, Yana Shiki undertail, Yana Shiki rear set, Trac Dynamics 8" ext. swingarm, LockhartPhillips levers, Marchesini wheels, more...
