Jim Owen, a fireman from Michigan, ran a nitrous ZX12-R in the early 2000's. He set 2-3 records with a best of 219.555 . Also set records at Maxton.
There was a turbo 12 that was sponsored by Corbin seats around 2004. Its best was about 217. Bike was later owned by Doug Meyer.    LSL

All motor all the time and a turbo now and then.
