Finally made it to the strip

Made it to the strip today, 70 degrees, low humidity and the sun shining. It was the first time this year for me, I got a few things ironed out in the first few passes. I'm 6'7" a 237 lbs suited, the best time

60 ft 1.49
330 ft 4.04
1/8 6.17
114.49 mph

made 10 passes all ranging from 6.17-6.43 and 112.27-114.52, most of them fell at the 6.20 to 6.26 range
08 ZX10R, pcv (dyno tuned), open exhaust, open air box, M/T tire, -3 +3 sprockets, secondary butterflies removed, shift light, clutch mod

I'm still messing with the gearing and the bike in general (always run harley's before), just got the bike in September of last year. I'll hit the next test n tune with hopefully 2 other front sprockets and just try stuff. I found out yesterday that leaving at 9000 rpms wasn't working for me but 7200 was giving me the best 60ft time and lowering the shift light to 12,200 was working best also. It's a good time.

What gearing are you guys using and having luck with and what gear are you in when crossing the 1/8 mile. I'm just banging 5th when i cross the line. Like i said I'm 6'7" and 237 lbs suited. I ran it last year with 17/41 and 14/41 and ran 15 passes with 14/41 from 6.40-6.47.

How long is your bike? As big as you are your gonna need a lot to get the much weight moving, no offense. But unless your wheelein all the way down the track, I'd say your doing great man! From your 60ft to your 330 it looks like you either wheelied or bogged after you got off the clutch???

I'm swb right now (looking to stretch it or strut it and run bars), no offense taken about the weight, I realize it gonna take a bit to get me moving because of that, it wheelied a little but never seemed to bog. Like I said I found that leaving at 7200 was helping my 60ft time but maybe it was bogging and I just didn't realize it.

Man with that much gear, the only reason your bike is going to bog is if you let off the throttle. If you gear a little taller if might actually help you. If you stretch your bike with that gear I think it would run pretty good, but gear it a little taller and I bet you run faster swb.
