Looks like the H2 rider had a little trouble out the gate.

That H2 is no slouch for a basically stock bike with some tuning.

If I were going the FI route, the Busa is hard to beat with all the turbo options at this point, but for a basically stock bike....you can't beat the H2.

Problem with the H2 is inlet temps (200F+).

I wonder about the weight savings vs aero difference of fairing. Pretty sure aero will help north of 100, though I've still outrun a Daytona on my Street Triple, so maybe weight matters?

Cant imagine the "pull" out of this bikes (either one), I would probably get a concussion from my eyeballs hitting my brain!

Has anybody tried water/meth injection on them?

I'm sure they have, but you're going to need to manage a tank.

Would likely work well with the intercooler kits that are offered, despite the crazy price tag.

Yeah, I was thinking for one pass, so I pictured something like a "sock" as tank. For maximum fun, a tank would be needed for sure. If there are intercooler kit, I would assume that would be a better option for a bike thats used "daily" on the street.

For a single 9/10ths pass I would think it should be ok. It was in the 80s out there and that is over xmas holiday. In the summer its so muggy. They've already had H2s break 220 in the standing mile.

Problem with the H2 in the 9/10ths is that its too torquey for that wheelbase off the break. 9/10ths is an ET game, whoever gets there first wins. You can beat a "faster" bike by being a "quicker" bike. There aren't enough around spending the time to get off the line quick.

Unrestricted a 260+ RWHP bike should roll the FK out...once someone spends time on smoothing out the power or dialing in the rear suspension they should be scary out the gate.

I hear you on the fast and quick, two whole different things.

"scary out of the gate" is an understatement IMO, I guess you get used to it after a while, but holy crap!

Takes so much practice.

I watched Sal come out the gate smoother an harder than one of his 140 lb jockeys. Thats from decades of experience. The jockey was no slouch, having a gen 4 10R that is WICKED...but years and years of endless practice is a real help.
