    This shares the garage with my Harley (and a couple of other bikes)

    Its a 2016 BMW S1000RR and its absolutely unbelievable.

    Claimed 199hp at the crank, but likely more, as they're regularly between 185 and 195rwhp with a pipe. 204kg wet weight.

    The electronics on it are insanely good. It uses the Bosch IMU which is a super complex bit of kit, and takes into consideration lean angle, throttle, traction, etc

    Its even got lean angle ABS, which if you're knee down in the corner with the bike lent over, and smash the front brake, it won't low side on you, and wont let you apply enough braking force that the bike would drop.

     I trailered it from Adelaide to Heathcote in Victoria for a street meet on day, pulled it off the trailer, wheelied the start, spun the rear in third when I hit the NOS, and still ran a 9.43 sec 1/4 mile.

    They asked me if I had a competition license (I didn't) so that was the only run I had on a 1/4 mile track.

    I wasn't aware you need a comp license for a sub 10 Sec bike.

    Neville Lush Racing in Victor Harbor make a 280 RWHP kit for the Rocket 111's that is naturally aspirated.

    Nothing for the cops to defect you on, they are insane, and that is what is going on the new bike.

    Very good time. Yeah I think it used to be 10.0 or under required an ANDRA licence, nowadays WSID say if it runs faster than 9.5 you need one.


    What type of power is it making?


    I only ran 10.1 on mine, very very difficult to get all the power down without the front end up coming. Theres a bloke in Perth running low 8's on an unopened engine, standard wheel base bike.

     Hard to tell on the total RWHP, as it spins the car tyre up on the Dyno. Even strapping it down as hard as possible, it turns the rubber to smoke, so the graph is very scribbly ( if that is a word) Neville estimated it at 287 RWHP when on the gas, It runs 190 RWHP without the gas.

    Neville Lush lock up clutch, pistons, cams, and head work all done in house.

    Do you find the car tyre a pain in the arse Loftybob? 
    I can't imagine cornering with it on, it would be a nightmare.

     I had one on my rocket as well. They steer interestingly with it on the back, they push the front and chew out fronts quickly. My mate took it for a ride and struggled to turn/lean over at the bottom of the driveway. Once you got the hang of it was not so bad

     Spot on, I have done about 200,000 km's on Darkside rears, you have to grip the bars a bit tighter on slow corners, round-a-abouts etc etc, but once you are over 30kmph, it feels normalish again.

    The 1st 5 minutes, you'll hate it, the next 10 minutes, it will feel weird, after 20 minutes, you'll be all over it.

    The 1st day riding it will probably give you sore forearms, depends if you ride mainly in town or country.

    Some bikes don't respond well to them, some are made for them.
