17,000 miles on a chain is a bunch.
One of the guys a rode with on the regular was on the S1000 HP4. My FZ1 had zero issues keeping up until about 100 MPH and then it just walks away with haste. We didn't do over the ton very often and then not for long.This is why I track the FZ more than I do my S1000.
All the 1,000cc throttle jockeys fly by me on the straights, then I catch back up at T1.
