08/10, First Time @the Dragstrip

So i was just wondering what an average person is running on a bone stock 08 ZX10? I took mine to the track this weekend and ran mine, now keep in mind that my last bike was an 88 FZR 1000, so getting used to this one is a Major Learning Curve. I started in the low 11s wondering what the heck i had bought. However by the end of the weekend i had netted a 10.14, a 10.17 and two 10.19s. Now when i say this bike is stock, i mean stock gearing, stock air filter, stock exaust, stock height/damping, the only thing i did is strap it. My best 60 ft was a 1.760, and the best mph was 142.65, just wondering if anybody else is having the same results? tks

Yes it is quite a challenge to keep her down, we were also going into a strong headwind all weekend so that wasn't particularly helping either. I had a friend there with a Busa and another with a 14, and they said there mid and MPHs were down, so i figure i'm in the ballpark anyway. I'm located in Moncton N.B Canada. We race at Miramichi Dragway about an hour away from here.

So my next question is, do i do a -1 front alone, or do the +2 rear as well? I weigh 170 lbs without gear. And i also plan on lowering it an inch or so.
