Impressed with the Gen 4

My buddy and I decided to hit the drag strip. I haven't had the Gen 4 on the strip yet so I wanted to see how it compared to my old Gen 1.

The best trap I could get out of my Gen 1 was 143mph with a PC3, filter, full akro exhaust, -1 front sprocket, with the front strapped down

My Gen 4 with similar power mods, Woolich flash, filter, AR slip on -1 front sprocket, and a front strap ran a [email protected] Needless to say, I was impressed to see a 7+ mph gain with the new Gen 4.

My buddy has S1000RR with a full exhaust, ECU flash, front strapped and his best trap was 153mph. He couldn't get off the line very well so he was running low 10's all night.

I had a strap on the front but the rear is actually raised 3/4". My bike is set up for the circuit with the exception of the strap that I threw on. I weigh 155-160lbs without gear

I haven't taken a bike to the drag strip in about two years. I'm sure the bike has more in it but I was happy to run 9's my first time on it within a handful of runs.
