'82 r80g/s 0-60 time....

Was out joyriding tonight and did an informal 0 to 60 with my '82R80g/s. I have equipped this bike with a Speedhut GPS speedo and it has 0-60 and 1/4 timing functions built in. Anyway, bike had about 3 gallons of gas and me on board (217 lbs all geared up). Also has a parabellum windscreen and a 2 -1 header with a Supertrapp exhaust, with I think about 16 baffles in it at the moment. Stock ignition, new airfilter, etc. Bike has new TKC80's on it and a DRZ front end. Castrol 20W-50 dino oil and regular gas with no ethanol if anyone cares.

Anyway, it ran a 8.28sec 0-60 time on a flat stretch of asphalt. Didn't run both directions for parity and only ran one time, etc.

For information only, to share with all the other airhead nuts on this site.

Interesting. I would expect it to be a bit quicker.

My GSPD feels pretty quick off the line. I was thinking this would be more around the order of six seconds.

It is tricky to get the start just right. Although even if the start wasn't perfect, maybe you wouldn't be able to get much less than seven seconds out of it.

Thanks for posting this. Not something I consider often, but does pique my curiousity.

I have no doubt if I practiced a bit I could get it below the 8 sec threshold with no problem and maybe close to 7 secs, but I doubt that I will stress it that way too often....

Just something to try and see how it would do. I need to figure out how to do the same test on my oilhead.

Second gear start launch at around 5,000 rpm beats the slow 1st to 2nd change.
Without a change to 3rd 60mph is just that little bit further than the stock engine wants to breath.

A lot of times the listed 0-60 time is just calculated by weight and horsepower not taking gearing or shifting time into consideration and thus the figures are often nowhere near achievable in reality. So unless you drive a Ferrari with shift times measured in milliseconds, trying to achieve the listed 0-60 time is often just a recipe for disappointment.
