Getting a Good Launch

Someone suggested 8-9K and modulating the clutch vs the throttle. Any merit to this?? Suggestions for getting a good start. I am racing middleweight (636) and with a field of thirty, a good start is very important.

i would say gas not the lever I would think that you would like to keep all of your clutch that you can so it will pull the hole race but I could be wrong

go to a drag strip and see what works?

I also need to work on my starts... fortunately I made my 636 street legal so I can just ride out to a deserted road and practice starts for free

Use the clutch or you won't be able to keep your revs up off the line.
