First Time at the Track with the 10R.

Finally had a good day and time off to go to the track. Last time I tried my charging system shit the bed 12 kms from my house, not a fun day. I believe the high was like 19 degree celius.

I'm not really going to go into mods and that's way to long but I'll just give the important numbers. After Tech I weight myself and the bike. Surprisingly the bike came in exactly at 400lbs and me at 200lbs fully suited. The bike makes 175HP at the wheel, not sure on the torque number. It is SWB and setup for aggressive road riding/road racing, launching with a stiff rear end was much harder than I thought it would be. Also using stock gearing which makes launch even more difficult.

I never really got the hang of the clutch but it did get a better just need more seat time. My slowest trap speed was 140.36MPH fastest 141.93MPH. A good run for me was basically hitting the limiter in 3rd at the finish line.

Fastest run was 10.991. I was consistantly in the 11.2 range. Slowest was 11.697.

Worst 60' 2.716 Best 2.369

The bike is stupid fast it just can't put down power early.

Ended up meeting a member on here Farkle and raced him. I beat him but either he wasn't going wide open at all or there's something wrong cause I don't think I should have pull on him like I did.

Here I did the 11.697 to his 11.810 but his RT and 60' were WAY better.

First pass ever with the 10R

Me made a fool by a pro level drag racer on a 2012 ZX14 what looked like a full Brocks and a stretch I'm guessing about 8 inches. He was a super nice modest guy. He was running 9.4s all night long.

Second last run. Was solo because the other guy low sided from doing a burnout coming out of the water box. No idea why, he didn't ride through it or anything. He also one of the regular fast guys.


Last pass, felt like my fastest was second fastest though. definitely went WOT but don't remember when.

Looking good there man.
More practice should help a lot with times. You should be able to run low 10's


BTW if the guy was "only" running 9.4 with a stretched 2012 14 he is not at pro level.

"The ZX-10R is capable of being perfectly docile and tractable, but few men are capable of resisting its ever-present voice urging them to just twist it and see what happens."

Yeah they all weigh 120lbs wet It's all on setup,weight and experience 11s on a 1000cc I bet is the norm for most not prepped on anything yet for the drag strip......My first times out I did 11s too even though I thought I was a very fast guy on the street.....but learned you better setup the bike right and with a some practice BAM 10s then lower 10s, now I go to the track with only 150hp + and yes I weigh over 215lbs in gear and hit a 9s almost every time these days with an 8yr old slow bike.

Damn, just bash the guy... I ran 11.20s consistently my first 2 times to the track. Last Friday was my 5th time to the track and I ran a 10.07(swb). It's all about seat time man. You'll get it just like I am. Make about 40-50 passes and I promise you that you'll be a completely different rider.
