...Forgot to post this little tidbit, but when I earlier posted a possible issue regarding the new SERT (http://www.1130cc.com/forums/showthread.php?p=1075163#post1075163), I forgot to mention that I talked w/ a service guy at the dealership who told me the new '08s are posting middle/upper 10 second 1/4 mile times.....I remember popular mechanic's quoting stock 1130cc's from last year at 12.46 seconds.....can just 120cc additional displacement bump the times "up" to THIS sub eleven second kind of performance?

I don't see a stock 1250 pulling a 10 in the 1/4.It would take a wheel and tire and possibly a 26 sprocket for my 07 to see 10.90's or 11 even.One of the best in stock form 07 1250 times I've heard of is a 11.02 and a 10.50,same bike, w a turbo.I've seen 11.80's on my 1130 and 11.60's on the 07.
I heard the bone stock 1130 is capable of 11.40's w a proffesional rider.The bikes I'm talking about were not bone stock,they had exhaust mods and a tuner.

Yeah, I had a salesman ask me whether or not it was true that not even a Hayabusa could beat a V-rod in third gear ?? He heard this from one of the techs at the dealership....
