Is this a bad time for a new rider?

Ive just recently got into bikes LITERALLY 3 months ago and decided to take my 05 10r to the local 1/8th. My mods are

5-6 inch stretch lowerd 1.75 in the front and unknown in the back
shinko stealth street tire not the u soft on 12lbs
16t/42t
full tsukigi exhaust
k&n filter
p/c 3 usb and p/c ign mod mapped for someone elses bike
Launching from 7-7.5k this was my best pass out of 5 runs

reaction-1.2529
60ft-1.8191
330ft-4.4460
[email protected]
1/8 et 6.5860
mph-115.37

My friend said im dumping the clutch way to early but im sure ill learn how to slip it sooner or later. Bike was bogging really bad. Any tips on doing better? Thanks guys!

thats really not a bad pass for your 1st time goin down the track. your 60 and 330 needs some attention. was you gettin to full throttle asap ? also try a lil more rpm on your launch next time your out. i launch my swb 10 around 8-8.5k rpms. best 60ft to date is a 1.60, best 1/8 mile pass 6.387 1/[email protected] mph.

Send a message via Yahoo to wildcats
change spark plugs, get a real map

If practice makes perfect, but no one is perfect so why try?

try slipin that clutch while keepin them rpms up high on the launch, these 10's have a very long 1st gear so you gota get them rpms up there.

Try launching at higher RPM... I launch at that and I'm SWB, with your stretch definitely go higher.

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