+1 on WOT @ 40MPH in 6th w/ stock gearing probably lugging the engine...dunno, never tried that.
oh rennsport, I suppose dry weights and crank HP figures are worthless as well...afterall, they are "utterly useless in the real world". No they are not just a marketing scheme...lol
No dry weight is not useless, as the weight of fuel, coolant, oil will be close for any given bike. The same goes for HP. The loss to the rear wheel are fairly constant, though you tend to lose more with shaft drive.
