Made My First Passes, Looking for Advice

I went to the drag strip for the first time and made some passes. My best of the night was 10.53 @ 143.66. Here are some vids https://www.zx-10r.net/forum/showthread.php?t=94326 and I'll list out my some of the slips. SWB and height. Looking for any and all tips to go faster short of stretching it cause I'm never going to do it.

Thanks in advance!

Leave at a higher rpm, and strap it. Those are the best two things i can think of without really modifying the bike. The first one just takes practice, leave higher in the rpms and use the clutch to do the dirty work. You need to be getting to wot quicker. Those are just my observations, but im no track expert either like some of the guys here are.

Thanks!! I was leaving around 7-8K rpm should it be higher? I'll look into strapping in it and I could probably lower it easily cause I have an ohlins rear shock so I'm pretty sure I can adjust the rear height and dropping the front is easy.

i leave around the same rpm. clutch control that is the key. You can full throttle after all you want but if you cannot slip the clutch while doing it you might as well take off like you do from the stop light. To me it didnt look bad. Any higher rpm depending on your weight you will pull the front end too high. my avatar pic was at 7500 rpm

thats a good rpm to start with. 1.7's is a good 60 imo swb but with practice you could probly do better. also how much do you weight ? i launch between 8-9k on my swb 05 and slip the clutch to control wheelies while keepin the throttle pin and i cut low to mid 1.6's 60ft's and im probly a lil heavier than you
