Gadson: 9.31 Pass on ZX14R (POV Video)


2012 Kawasaki ZX-14R

Last week, Ultimate Motorcycling’s President Arthur Coldwells was at the press launch for the 2012 Kawasaki ZX-14R.

And as part of that launch, Coldwells and fellow moto-journalists were invited to Las Vegas Motor Speedway’s quarter-mile track to have some fun with the all-new ZX-14 R with lessons from AMA Drag Racing Champion Rickey Gadson.

Gadson, who helped put Coldwells into the lower 10s on a stock ZX-14R, took a lightly-modified machine down the Vegas strip at an impressive 9:31 at 141.86 mph.

The modificiations? A Brock’s lowering kit and two-teeth off the rear sprocket.

Attached above is a short of the pass from the Point of View of Gadson; the video also contains some commentary from Rickey himself.
