A great vid!
LSR uses highly accurate timing lights, like a dragstrip. That is how the speeds are derived. The modified street H2 went faster than Gadson's bike.Correct me if I am wrong, but Gadson's 1 mile "special" H2 record in June showed over 230 mph on the speedo, no gps was claimed, with a 4% opportunistic error results in a 9.2 mph loss that puts his bike right near Brock's Stage 2 effort. No one is going to ride Gadson's stretched H2 on the street. Can someone post the 218+ mph H2R video here ? Hats off to Brock though, I would not be surprised to see 300 rwhp in the near future from his continued R&D effort. Due to the small numbers of H2R's I imagine only those who have big bucks are going to try to push the H2R to over 350 rwhp. I have a friend who has 2 H2R's and claims he is going to achieve that. Only time will tell.
Never said it was. Said it was an hybrid H2 w/ the H2Rs cam, exhaust, ECU. Guess the engine case too...But it did have an okay pilot who launched the bike pretty darn hard. In fact that hybrid H2 w/ the H2Rs engine, electronics w/ Ricky in the cockpit actually went FASTER than this H2R w/ Id say a pretty competent team.It is still not an H2R.
Thanks for the clarification again.Never said it was. Said it was an hybrid H2 w/ the H2Rs cam, exhaust, ECU.

But so far Brocks stage 2 H2 beat them both with potential for even more.
The engine & electronics is H2R so close enough & Rickys bike was strapped down too but think you're confusing the point. We all know that a stock H2 won't win against a stock H2R the whole purpose is to see if a street legal bike (H2) w/ bolt ons like we all can buy & use on the street or track can beat the H2R a bike that's technically only track legal. Sprockets, flash, exhaust, PCV, whatever works. And so far it has.I watched it...very impressive what Brock's team is able to do with the H2.
Note the title from the link "Brock’s Kawasaki Ninja H2 Breaks H2R’s Land-Speed Record". The 218mph was set by RG's H2 Hybrid.
What I meant was RG's bike is not a factory H2R so Brock broke RG's Modified H2 Record, not H2R. Factory H2R did not set any record yet!
The sprocket setup in stage 2 kit is 19/41 as indicated in the video, which is very tall gearing, which favors top speed run. Unless my math lets me down, Brock's bike was pulling less than 13000 rpm at the end of a mile run?
Brock's bike is also strapped down, which favors acceleration in 1/4-mile run and 1-mile run. Nothing wrong with doing this.
I believe Team 38 ran the H2R with factory setup (not strapped down). Giving the right sprocket combo for H2R at the same track and same atmospheric and wind conditions with the bike strapped down, who knows what the numbers really are.
