1/4 mile times - heavy hitter - 310ish lbs in gear

Went to SGMP on the 3rd for a private track rental. Bike is a 2008 ZX-10 bone ass stock. All I did was remove the passenger pegs, tag bracket, and clean her up real good.

Yes, you can hear it - I took the muffler off. I did it so I can hear the bike in videos and critique myself and learn what I'm doing wrong.

The ONLY thing not factory is I lowered the bike using Roaring Toyz 5 hole dogbones (on the 4th hole - second to lowest) and I strapped the front end.

I weigh roughly 310lbs in gear.

This pass was a 11.05 @ 135mph. Best pass of the day was a 10.8 @ 135 mph with a 7.2 @ 109 in the 1/8th.

I shift into second right around the 600' mark and 3rd probably at 900 feet or so. I was crossing the lines at 13,000 rpm (redline) in 3rd gear. Once the bike is geared I will have to hit 4th no doubt.

8000rpm launch and lean forward more as you slip the clutch.

09 R6S Slow and steady...

slipping the clutch as in let it out slowly? Not just dropping the clutch at launch?
