A customer of ours who races his K3 Hayabusa on the salt flats at Lake Gardiner in South Australia  was the first motorcycle to exceed 200MPH (323KPH) in 2004 with a speed of 200.9MPH .

This motor had been dynoed at 161RWHP on our DynoJet dyno . Since then SBP has built a new motor for him which makes 186RWHP so hopefully at the next speed week on the lake we can achieve a better result.

Jim and Grant are heading off to the salt at Lake Gairdner to try for some speed records. Jim Hanlon will be aboard the SBP GSXR1000 K7  and Grant Schlein the SBP powered K3 GSX1300R. We have high hopes for a record or two .

Even though the salt was not at its best Grant went 198.085MPH only just missing his own P/P1350 record of 198.347MPH by .262. Remember this is for a bike with unmodified air box and exhaust system!!

Speedweek 02/13

The race meet was moved forward one month to February and the surface was good.

Grant Schlein raced his new L1 GSXR1000  and set records in two classes  P/P1000 is now 185.682 mph ( production) & MPS/G1000 (modified) is up to 188.442 mph.

After a bit more tuning on the SBP Dynojet 250i Paul Powditch returned with his K8 GSXR750 and in production he reset his own P/P750 record from 167.566 to 172.640 mph.  After a change of fuel  and exhaust  he also ran in MPS/F750  and set that record to 177.261 mph.



Speed week 03/10

Back at the salt for 2010 and the search for speed is on again. Grant  was hoping he could extend his speed record after an unsuccessful attempt in 09 and he wasn't disappointed .

The K3 Busa stopped the clocks  with an impressive turn of speed and pushed his own record to 203.504mph , an increase of 5.157 mph. While the salt was not at its best Grant made the most of his runs to achieve his new record.

Also along for the run was Paul on a 08 GSXR750 which was prepped by SBP before leaving . Paul went on to reset the P/P 750 Record to 162.954mph  he also ran in the modified section MPS/G 750 and acquired another record of 167.566mph. Two records on the same bike now that's having fun.
