You don't know what is behind those bikes.....pour power, my brother & I trade our bikes and from the light we both nailed our bikes and on his 14 I pull the front end up where I had to let go of the throttle but my brother lean forward and he took off on my bike like there is no tomrrow......I have good 200 size tire on the back and though I can burn that tire of the rim it grabs really well....I can never understand to why ZX14 went with 190 tire....with that much power how can one keep that tire from spinning....my brother went through his first rear tire less than 3k miles, he went with new model tire that came out not too long ago, harder compound in the middle and softer compound on the outer.....seems to be better is what he said.

10k miles out of motorcycle tire is one excellent thing...I dont think I have ever gotten pass 5k on my bike....and I am the type that will not burn out for few reasons.....1=waste of tire, 2=bad for the chain, 3=bad for my wallet, 4=no doubt my bike can do it (don't need sprocket/gear upgrade).......with all those reasons why bother

If I someone sponsor me with their bike and tires I will burn tires all day long, since I don't have to pay for it But you see those people showing off that they can burn their tire.....what I don't understand is "who are they trying to fool?" Anyone one can burn tires holding the brake, pure power is when you lean forward and just crack the throttle and let your bike burn tire off the rim....now that's something to watch....and you know big bikes are the only one that can do that but not a lot of the folks can do it due to the front end pulling up so if you are a smaller frame person you'd better be sitting on the tank
