    0-60: Heavily Modded FZR or Triple Pipe GPR?

    Who wins?

    The triple pipe GPR probably has 240-260 hp and the modded FZR (still sc, running less than 12 psi) has what, 310-330?

    More like 15+ psi for the heavy modded FZR's. Not only more HP but gobs more torque than a TP GPR would ever imagine making.

    Sounds like an overgeneralization to me. A big bore (1500) GPR would put out some serious torque, and a big bore triple would still be about 1/2 the cost of a highly modded FZR.

    I'd love to see the acceleration curves.

    It just nvr stops with you.


    A Heavily modded FZR will destroy a TP GPR big bore or not.

    Ask Jerry how many skis beat him at mud bug

    You obviously don't know much about the relationship between displacement/forced induction and torque.

    I don't think Jerry ran a big bore tripple at mudbug.

    I think it would be close with a well setup tripple but it would probably come down to the rider.

    Take a tripple that can go 88mph+ and prop it down and add an aggressive grate/pump setup so it tops out at 85mph and it would be a good run.

    From what I hear those FZRs are bad

    BUT... a triple piped GPR would be COOLER than ANY FZR

    Um, speak for yourself. Displacement is similar between the two skis. Forced induction helps the four stroke move more air per combustion cycle, but the two stroke already has an advantage, and the GPR is considerably lighter.
