1st gen 1/4 mile

So I took my 05 to Rockingham dragway yesterday to make some 1/4 mile passes. It was the first time running my bike in the 1/4. I knew my bike was going to have trouble keeping the front wheel down so I installed some adjustable lowering links and a lowering strap in the front.
The only mods on my bike are
-secondarys removed
-bmc air filter
-gutted stock exhaust
-lowered
-Factory pro velocity stacks
-mirrors removed

My best pass was a 9.6 142mph. My fastest pass was a 9.7 144mph. I beat a lowered busa with a full system by at least 4-5 bikes. I also beat a gsxr 1000 that was stretched with a full system by a few bikes. I was really surprised. I would have been happy with a 9.99. the 9.6 et made my night.

Thanks man. I was stoked. I also forgot to mention I was only running 87 octane because we have a fuel crisis here and no one had 93. I did buy some race gas at the track before my last 2 runs but I think it actually made me slower because I was running back to back 9.7s. When I put the race gas I couldn't get below a 9.8.

I had a random guy come up to me and ask what all I had done to the bike. He couldnt believe it was almost stock and running 9.6. When I got done at the track and was riding home my clutch started slipping real bad so I need a clutch. I think I was pretty hard on the clutch.

Yeah 9.6 for an almost stock 10 is a great time....something for me to shoot for if I ever make it to the drags. What RPM did you launch at? Do you know where on the track you were done slipping the clutch and could stay WFO? Also, what were your 60 footers?

I was launching at about 7-8K. I slip the clutch a good ways down the track because of the stock gearing. I dont let the clutch all the way out until maybe the 60ft mark. I have some video of a few runs, I just have to figure out how to get them on the computer.. or have someone elso do it.
these are some of my best times

give dewayne a call at cycle concepts and pick up the "race pak" for $150. kenny popell and others swear by it.
