First Time at the Strip this year!!!!

Only ran 3 times(clutch went out of adjustment so I shut her down) I didn’t know what to expect with the big layoff and the bike with many more thousands of miles on my 5yr old bike.

I still weigh over 200lbs and the bike is still stock with just a gearing change and slip-on NO PCIII..edit SWB..

Well it came out better than I thought…….In FACT I BROKE 3 PERSONAL RECORDS IN ONLY 3 RUNS.

1ST Personal best ¼ mile time 9.96sec (previous record 9.97s)
2nd- Personal best Top Speed 146.5mph (previous record 145.9mph)
3rd- Personal 1/8 mile top Speed 121mph (previous record I think 116mph)

I will post up a time slip later scanner down right now with the NEW BUSA I was racing and beat to his 10s flat @ 147.5 top speed.

edit...added Time Slip the other bike is a New Busa:

And I thought you'd be way to old and skeered to go that fast anymore.

Yeah I was surprised I always thought only the professionals or guys with big Mods can do that speed in the 1/8 but hey the guys back east always say they can do 120+ in the 1/8 so I will take it.

PS....If any of you long time drag racers have any experience on clutches I found out after/during my last run the clutch would not disengage until the lever was almost released. I was trying to do a burn out and the tire wasn't spinning. I think it's heat related because on the lift at home everything seems normal now....sticky clutch.....have Cycle Concepts clutch like stock.

when I had my old drag bike we used to add a washer in the spring stack and that helped but that was in the 80's
