Short shifting the bike is absolutely killing your MPH. I weigh 300lbs in street clothes and I run 138mph on my SWB 08.
Even in 2nd, shifting at 12k is killing you. Peak power is at 12,500ish so you want to shift right at 13k to keep it near peak power. Running 138mph in the 1/4 I am at about 13,100 RPM in 3rd gear as I pass the traps.
My personal best is 10.8 @ 138 and thats a stock bike just lowered in the rear and strapped in the front. That pass was a 1.98 60' as well.
