More info about it,

This was my second time out to the strip with my 10 and third time ever. My biggest issue was trying to snag full throttle. I think I could really do well with a 1/5 turn insert though. What do you guys think?

And how much more time do you think is possible to shave from my 60ft without changing the bikes stace at all?

my bike ran 6.90s swb not lowered or strapped at 117mph, 2nd gen with 3rd gen head and .50 headgasket and everything pretty much stock. I am having the same problems as you, can't go wot in first gear but with a strap it ran 6.7 at 121, 60 went from 1.9 to 1.7 and can get even better if I can go wot.

At this point you need to worry LESS about your 60ft and MORE on getting her to WOT quicker. Not discounting the fact that your 60ft has room for improvement but its not your biggest weakness right now. Start paying more attention to the 330 than the 60 for now.

Sure you can do the insert and it may make it easier since you will have less wrist movement. However, the fundamental problem can be fixed by choking up really high and concentrating more on getting her WOT. Sit on the bike, with it turned off and practice hitting WOT and letting out the clutch. Muscle memory.

When you're just starting out your'e worrying about so many different things and trying to do too many things right you end up doing all of them wrong. Another reason I would ignore your reaction times as well when just starting off. One less thing running through you're head.

Oh well, hope that helps. Have fun, keep practicing, and those times WILL drop.

Best 1/4mi ET: 8.98 @ 147 (stock motor, no turbo/nitrous)

I wish they gave the 330ft on it. That would help a lot actually. I know that was my biggest issue was getting to WOT. Ill give it a try. I dont get a lot of time on the strip is what sucks. Cant afford to keep going there and pay for tires being a college kid. I have a total of 12 runs on this bike over 2 sessions. My launch and R/T feels much stronger than the first time though, so definent improvement.

Any tips are very welcomed, as are comments about it. Anything I can take really. I know the MPH is low, I was doing 97-101 on my 05 ZX6R 2 years ago, but my time is much better.

What is choking higher up? I dont understand the meaning. Feel free to teach me anything drag related, please, I welcome any information.

Rotate your wrist upward before grasping the grip instead of trying to over-rotate your wrist downward.
