You'll be out of gears in 200 yds. A 1/4 mile is 1760 yds. What then...redline for another 15+ football fields? I'd try some crafty sprocket ratios.....I bet our beasts will do way better than 105mph with different gearing.
If you do it...make sure you video. I want to see you bust some Saab a$$.

Now that would be a race...turbo or no turbo.

A MILE is 1760 yrds!!
1/4 mile is 440 yds!!!
I know cuz back in high skool my gutts were hangin' out at the 1320 mark!! running the MILE!
I did used to have a Honda 900RR and that thing screamed. I came up against a 98 YZ400f one night and he blew my doors off until about th 80' mark.
That was about the time he was in 3-4th accelerating but the Purble CBR was an animal after 5k rpm!
I caught him about 1/8 mile and he was TAPPED.
I went by him like he was going backwards.(not that the 98' was slow, just ran outta gear.)
I went thru the traps at 120.9 and 11.59et!
I dont know his exact speed/time but guessing 88-92 and et-13.5-14.5???
Watch them 4wheel kinda' guys. some of them are super fast.
I saw a SUPRA get booted because he was too fast for STREET night. He "says" he had his turbo turned down and still turned a 10.55-ET WHOOOOAAAA!!!??

199? 500 CR = 14.8 @ 78 mph
Both bikes stock.Just a couple guys goofing around.

I don’t think they will let me run the 426 against a car, but if they do, I’ll do it…If not, I’ll run on bike night or whatever, if their running the ¼ mile on a day that the motocross track is open. I will do it with stock gearing if it ever happens. Now Im just curious what time a stock geared bike will do with knobbies. Im guessing around 15 sec….???
Bye the way…the Saab is not a turbo model. I think I can take him…lol

m=450 lb (200 lb rider on 250 lb bike)
t=((2*d^2*m)/pwr)^1/3 = 12.1 sec
v=2*d/t = 149 mph
This assumes that the 50hp is continuously put to the ground, which due to the powerband and gearing and shifting does not happen in reality. It also neglects the effect of air resistance and friction.
In other words, if you had a continuosly variable transmission that could keep the bike putting 50hp to the ground, and there wasnt any friction, this is the best performance you could expect.

But Happy found me amusing and would not beat me up to often. He found out I was a pretty good wrench so I would work on his bike for beer.
One day he had some buddies over who were just as scary as him. One of them couldn't get his bike started. So I said in a sing song voice:
Harley, Harley go for a spin.
Ride out the garage push it back in.
The guy went nuts and would have pounded me if it wasn't for Happy. So he said lets see you start it ya little #$@&%. He had a peanut tank on the thing and it wasn't mounted well. I could see the fuel line was kinked and no fuel was getting in. I got on the bike and pinched the kink in the fuel line. First kick it started right up. If Happy was not there I would have been killed on the spot. I let it idle until it died. Then the owner tried to start it and couldn't. Happy said I had better tell his buddy how I did it.
Harley, Harley would like to go for a spin.
Can't go, fuel line kinked no gas get in.
The owner started chasing me around but since I was 14 and quick he couldn't catch me.
