Another night at the strip

Well took the bike out after the new clutch, hadn't done any test passes. Track was surprisingly hooking good. On my second pass for whatever reason I didn't get it into second bounced rev in first. On the last or second to last pass i floated the front all of first and still didn't go fast! Bogged it a little here and there was really looking to do better, then after my fifth pass they told me I was going too fast. So I did one more lol. Not sure what I have to do to get better.. On the 124.43 pass I bounced rev in third but wasn't sure if I should of shifted into fourth or if it'd slow me down idk I should of shifted I guess. Still under 20 passes I just need to figure out what im doing wrong.

That pass when you kept your front wheel like 6" off the ground from the launch to second looked bitchin man.

That's still pretty bad ass man. That kind of 1/8th looks like, what, 9.0-9.2 1/4? For a bolt on/no power adder bike that's haulin the mail. I wish I could go that quick on my supercharged bike.

Nice times. Especially with 1.50s 60 foot. Your knocking on 5.7s easy with 1.4's short times.
You are pure footshifting? Just curious because I'm still footshifting and running almost the same gearing. 15-41 and cut 1.43-1.47 60s. Ran a 5.83-125.8 last night.

Yea foot shifting gp style. I'm told the elevation is killing me as far as getting to 5.7x. Bike made 175 on a heart breaker dyno, my old gen4 also made 177. I would launch, wheelie a little then it'd bog on me but i am 99% sure i was wot. Think I need to adjust the suspension some I guess. I would like bottom 1.4 60' I just can't see how to get there =/
