First time at strip with the 10

finally made it to the strip for the first time with my 10 streetbike. temp in mid 70's and a 10-20 mph cross wind at track. track was also a little slippery, leaving a 6500 to hook and still breaking loose a little, shows in 60 fts. spun on the best mph pass. got great potential. have time slips but cant post tonight. first pass spun 1.66 60ft. 6.002 @121.68, 2nd pass hooked and had to feather throttle a little on first gear wheelie.1.489 60 ft. 5.89 @123.93, last pass spun 1.605 60 ft. 5.90 @124.86.

62 in., good rider. track was slippery, bike only event, about 60 bikes, no cars putting down fresh rubber, and unprepped as a private event. had to leave soft. rider did a good job today under conditions. gonna pull some high 1.30's, low 1.40's, make a couple of changes, and post some new times.

thanks guys, bike is running strong, full street trim, ridden every day. track was the issue, not the rider, everybody was struggling, and we only got 3 first out passes. just swap the 60's which are terrible and we had 5.70's in hand. eng. mods are my headwork, small stk. lift web regrinds at 107-104, shimmed stk. valve springs, cnc full radius valve job, thin hg, ,015 deck to restore combustion chamber work done, tb flies, rods, and step removed, timing advanced 3 degrees mechanically, int. tract blended from stk. stacks to valves, k and n, tiforce ex., welded basket with stk. springs shimmed .080, pair plates connected, afr at 13.7. rider weight suited 175.
