first time on the strip

05 zx10r(PC, -1/+1, level one racing slip on)

so I rode with some buddies and long story short.... peer pressure lol.

quick burn out, no water, as soon as I line up and drop the visor on my hjc Rphla helmet it begins to fog, I hold my breath and proceed to roll it out.... my time was

RT: .5775
60' : 2.44

second pass wasn't any better, 12.5 @ 123. I up shift and it went into neutral and once I got it in gear it popped the front up, I brought it down and kept on it.

track is being prepped like every 5 minutes for cars having to much water on the tires so it's a night for me. next time I'm going to get a good 5 passes before I call it a night.

i remember doing this on my moded ZX6R..

all day i was running mid 11s.

i think it was thanks to it being extended and the quickshifter on the bike.

it was fun but one wrong move and you'd be regretting it for a long time

Awesome man.

A few more days and you will drop a lot of time.

thanks guys, the bike has "race fairings" I need to post pics but they aren't a full race with no lights, still trying to figure out the brand.

bike runs very rich and I'm wanting to do a dyno tune as I'm sure it doesn't have one. I bought the bike modded.

I'm really considering doing a small stretch and lowering the bike maybe a inch, but tune and a speedo healer is definitely first.

I remember racing last year in November lol, 34 deg outside, pull up to the line, flip the visor............can't see shit lol, flip it back up it's fine, flip it back down it fogs again lol, I did this 5 times and then aborted the run lol.

Put your helmet on your head and walk around in it with the visor down for 5-10mins, then you can go racing and it won't fog lol

I have a set of lowering links and a front dragstrap with brackets for sale that would help you out tremendously pm me if interested. The first gen has lots of power in it, i ran the best of a 9.75 @147 with just exhaust pc3 lowered and strapped...seat time is key

SWB is not easy to ride lowered and strapped let alone stock ride height. keep going and working at it. Completely stock bike back in 04 I was rolling 9.80's with lots of seat time

bike is down for not but not out
turbo project is a slow go no money

Need some work done
