^i usually double clutch like I should but I decided before the race that I would "drive like a woman" so adamantium would have something useless to comment

Yeah, but the mods clearly woke that bike up a bit. The jets and sprocket are significant on a bike like that. Not saying it's gonna murder anything modern, but it clearly made a difference over stock. I bet that bike as it sits is capable of a bit higher than 115 with a solid rider. And keep in mind that trap speeds are deceiving vs how it's gonna pull in first gear, especially on a sprocketed bike. Sprockets can sometimes shave off a couple tenths without really affecting your trap speed, if you think about what that would mean for a first gear race like this.

Definitely a strong showing, though.

not bad for a old school 100hp dinosaur.. just think, that old *** 750 made a usual 100hp at the wheel.. new 600's are barely breaking that. power band is totally different but old school tech still had some *****

I didn't think an '86 would make nearly 100 hp to the rear tire, more like 90 on a good day, but obviously with a decent torque curve. And the mods will certainly help both power and gearing from a low roll.

Thats not an 86' Intercepter... That is a later model VFR that honda put the old paint scheme on... Probably like an 05 or something.... They are still turds though... Only about 85hp... Low 12s with normal riders, high 11s with decent to good riders.... Basically like an early 2000s 600 runs...

Good runs though and good kill for the cobra

It don't make 100 to the wheel. Maybe 80. My old Hurricane 1000 only made 101 0r 110...I forget. But it would had to a vfr 750 so fast they would'nt know what happened. That bike ran a 11.1 @ 124 uncapped 11.4@ 121 capped.

I guess the bike in the vid is an original 80s vintage VFR....

When I think of 86' Interceptors, THIS is what I think of:

I forgot all about the full faired 750 VFR of 86. But yes, they are still turds.... none of them made a true 100 rwhp... Even the NEW VFR800s dont make 100 rwhp.... They are rated at 110hp at the crank... Probably 95-98 rwhp.
